Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Monday, April 5.
Gunners provide Luiz injury update
Arsenal have confirmed that David Luiz has undergone a small procedure on his right knee after he missed the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday night.
Mikel Arteta said that the injury could see the Brazilian defender sidelined for the remainder of the season, but the Gunners have now provided an update.
The club have revealed that Luiz could return to action in the coming weeks after a successful operation on the knee problem.
In a statement, Arsenal said: “David Luiz underwent a small procedure on his right knee on Sunday morning.
“The procedure has been a success and David is now back at home rehabilitating. He will be able to return to daily support and recovery with our medical team at the training centre in the coming days.
“David is expected back to full fitness and available for selection in the upcoming weeks.”

How Lacazette reacted to Ceballos’ performance
Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos certainly didn’t put in his best performance in the defeat to Liverpool and this wasn’t unnoticed by his team-mate Alexandre Lacazette.
An unnecessary foul from the Spaniard as the Gunners looked to break on the Reds, who were dominant all evening, caused a steely glare from the blood-stained eye of Lacazette, with the Frenchman colliding with Nat Phillips earlier in the match.
It might be a bit harsh to be too downbeat about Ceballos, who has been a fringe player all season-long under Mikel Arteta.

Odegaard’s Liverpool admission re-emerges
Martin Odegaard’s embrace with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after the full-time whistle caused quite the stir on social media amongst Arsenal fans.
It’s unclear what Odegaard and Klopp were talking about, but it was enough to send some Gunners supporters into meltdown on Saturday evening.
Now, a previous admission from the Norway midfielder has come under the spotlight once again, where he admitted that a move to Anfield would be the dream for him.

“Liverpool have always been my dream club,” Odegaard previously told German newspaper Sport Bild before he joined Real Madrid, as per the Evening Standard.
“But I will not let this affect my decision when I choose a new club.
“It’s all about finding the team that is best for me and for my development.
“That is not necessarily Liverpool. I haven’t really thought about my future yet.
“I will end the season here and then visit a number of clubs. I have not made a final decision yet, though.
“Of course, it’s flattering when you hear that big clubs are after you, but I don’t think about it too often.”
