Paul Merson has written in SportsKeeda that Arsenal playmaker Martin Odegaard plays consistently well.
The former Arsenal star believes that Norway international attacking midfielder Odegaard has been one of the best players for Mikel Arteta’s side so far this season.
Merson has also raved about Arsenal and England international winger Bukayo Saka.
The Gunners are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment and could win the title.
Paul Merson on Arsenal duo Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka
Merson wrote: “As for Arsenal’s standout performer this season, it’s between Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, for me.
“The Arsenal captain has led from the front and produced the goods consistently, while Saka has scored some big goals for Mikel Arteta.
“I like players who show up in big games to score the opening goal or the winner and Saka has done exactly that this season.”
HITC Verdict: Gem of a player
In our view, Martin Odegaard is one of the best attacking players in the Premier League and has been superb for Arsenal so far this season.
The former Real Madrid playmaker is having a brilliant campaign and is a leader in the middle of the park.
Now, we do not often see Odegaard screaming and shouting at his teammates.
Instead, the Norwegian leads by example and lets his football do the talking.
Odegaard is the perfect captain for an Arsenal team who are together and who are young and vibrant.
The 24-year-old has scored 10 goals and given six assists in 26 Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far this season.
