When Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka, who are both older than him, were named to the team as permanent captains, one might have assumed that Martin Odegaard would succumb to the pressure. However, the Norwegian midfielder has inspired his teammates this season as the Gunners attempt to end a 19-year Premier League title drought.
In addition to scoring goals, Martin Odegaard has added inventiveness to Arsenal’s midfield. Every midfielder in the Premier League this season, including Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, and Bernardo Silva, has fewer goals than the former Real Madrid star.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes of Leicester City are among the midfielders who have scored the most goals in the Premier League this season with 7 and 6 goals, respectively, for the Foxes, although they are still second to Martin Odegaard in that category.
Recall that Arsenal has been in excellent form this year, and their most recent victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League demonstrates that they are superior to the other EPL teams this year.
However, they will see tough competition this year as Manchester United visits the Emirates in an effort to win its 11th straight game.
Hugo Lloris’ own goal and a goal from Martin Odegaard gave the Premier League champions their first win over Tottenham on the road at White Hart Lane since that same year.
