The North London outfit hope to return to winning way after failing to get victory in their last consecutive fixtures with a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa and a goalless draw with Leeds United.

Arsenal flew out to Norway on Tuesday and were pictured at the airport boarding their plane to Scandinavia via the club Twitter handle with Balogun, Azeez plus other academy prospects Emile Smith Rowe and Ben Cottrell.
