3. Martin Odegaard

Of course, the captain will have an impact on whether or not Arsenal win the Premier League title. Certainly, he will be thinking back to last season and he will hope to inspire his side to greater things. As his own harshest critic, question marks will be spiralling in his head about last season and what happened but now he and the team he leads have the chance to make it up to fans.

Odegaard is one of the best midfielders in the world and he is picking up form at the best possible time for Arsenal. The skipper was influential to Arsenal progressing to the Champions League quarterfinal, due to his exceptional assist and all-round involvement against Porto in the second leg.

If anybody can deal with Rodri and (potentially) Kevin De Bruyne, it's Martin Odegaard. While he isn't known to be the most defensive midfielder, he isn't afraid to get stuck in. Most importantly, he will hope to inspire Arsenal make the most of their chances, which could be more limited than they are used to in this match.
