    The Norwegian missed Thursday’s draw with Slavia Prague in the Europa League after picking up an ankle problem on international duty.

    When asked about the Real Madrid loanee’s availability, Arteta said: “We don’t know.
    “He wasn’t able to play today and he will be out, I think, for the next game or two. But we don’t know yet.”

    Team news
    United have been handed a boost with Marcus Rashford set to be fit to start this weekend’s clash against Tottenham.
    The England star was on target in the 2-0 Europa League win over Granada but was withdrawn during the game due to a lingering foot issue.
    Edinson Cavani provided a late cameo on Thursday and may get a chance to start in Anthony Martial’s absence with Rashford back on the left.
    With the David De Gea and Dean Henderson saga rumbling on, Solskjaer made a big statement in starting the latter in midweek.
    Having regularly used his ‘back-up’ goalkeeper in the Europa League, it suggests Henderson will return to the starting XI this weekend.
    And Spaniard De Gea is reportedly set to be axed in the summer with Europe’s biggest clubs being offered his services.

    Odds

    Tottenham – 15/8
    Draw – 23/10
    Man Utd – 11/8

    Will England vs Scotland be played with away fans and how will tickets be sold?

    MEMORIES of Euro 96 will be rekindled as England take on Scotland at Wembley in Euro 2020.But will we see another trademark Tartan Army invasion of the English capital this summer?
    The Tartan Army will hope to be able to travel in their thousands to WembleyCredit: Kenny Ramsay – The Sun Glasgow
    Here’s all you need to know.
    How many fans are allowed at England vs Scotland?
    Each of the host nations had made a submission to Uefa, declaring the minimum amount of fans they will allow at Euro 2020.
    For England, that figure is 25 per cent, meaning 22,500 fans are expected at Wembley as the Three Lions take on Scotland.
    The UK government and the FA are hoping to raise their minimum capacity to at least 50 per cent later in the tournament, but this is only likely to happen in the semi-finals and finals.
    Wembley is not one of the Euro 2020 venues to have offered to host away fansCredit: PA
    Are away fans allowed at Euro 2020?
    Only FOUR host nations have stated an intent to allow fans from abroad to attend games in their countries, and England is not one of them.
    Azerbaijan, Russia, Hungary and Romania have all sent proposals to Uefa outlining ways in which they could exempt Euro 2020 fans from quarantine requirements.
    England’s proposal means Croatia and Czech Republic fans would be unable to travel from overseas to watch their teams at Wembley, but this may not apply to Scotland.

    Can Scotland fans attend England away?
    As there is no border to cross for Scotland fans to enter England, the FA and Uefa are believed to have agreed that the Tartan Army can be given a 16 per cent allocation – as they would have been at a pre-Covid tournament.
    That would mean an away attendance of 3,600 at Wembley for football’s oldest international fixture.
    There would also be no restrictions on Scots in England buying tickets if they are able to acquire them through the regular sales process.
    That means the real number of Scots at the home of football could be over four thousand.
    How do I get England vs Scotland tickets and can I attend if I’ve already bought them?
    Uefa will confirm ticketing details for all games in due course. More

    Why is Wilfried Zaha not taking the knee?
    The Crystal Palace forward Zaha has said he will no longer the knee before games.
    Zaha, 28 said: “I’ve said before that I feel like taking the knee is degrading and stuff because growing up my parents just let me know that I should be proud to be black no matter what and I feel like we should just stand tall.
    “I feel like taking the knee now, it’s becoming… we do it before games and even sometimes people forget that we have to do it before games.
    Wilfried Zaha has said that he feels taking the knee is degrading
    “Trying to get the meaning behind it, it’s becoming something that we just do now and that’s not enough for me. I’m not going to take the knee.
    “We’re isolating ourselves, we’re trying to say that we’re equal but we’re isolating ourselves with these things that aren’t even working anyway, so that’s my stand on it.”
    Since Project Restart of the football system last year, players and staff at Premier League and EFL matches have been taking a knee before kick-off to show support for the global anti-racism movement.
    A number of teams in the EFL are now choosing not to perform the gesture but Zaha is the first Premier League player to opt to remain standing. More
