3. Martin Odegaard
The Norwegian had a fantastic game yesterday. A goal, an assist, a penalty won, and the author of the cross that Jesus headed against the woodwork, he was instrumental in all four goals.
He also had a great captain’s performance, stepping up with confidence for the penalty and handing the second to Havertz. He pushed the German to the fans after to celebrate, attempting to boost Havertz’s confidence.
He was far better than the previous weekend, and so were Arsenal as a consequence. It’s almost a worry for me that if Odegaard doesn’t perform, Arsenal look like a completely different team. It wasn’t an issue against Bournemouth though: the captain blew the opposition away.
