3. Martin Odegaard

A place in the starting lineup is ALWAYS reserved for the captain Martin Odegaard. This will be no different against Bournemouth, particularly with six days to rest between matches.

Against Tottenham, the Norwegian maestro put in an exceptional performance as he was pulling the strings, like he so often does, in the centre of the park.

An excellent display of classy touches and line-breaking passes. It was yet another day at the office for Martin Odegaard, who continued to showcase his leadership qualities, even as a substitute.

Speaking of, Odegaard was ejected from the game at the right point. He was being kicked around a lot by the salty Spurs players so it was right to bring off Odegaard in the 89th minute.

Odegaard will now focus on recovery and providing he didn't pick up an injury in the North London derby (he seemed to be okay), he is a non-negotiable starter for Arsenal vs Bournemouth.
