Odegaard has three goals in six games this season. Rio Ferdinand, who initially questioned Arsenal’s decision to give him the captaincy, has been impressed by his performances.

Arsenal defeated Brentford 3-0 in their final EPL game before the international break, and Thomas Frank admitted after the game that Arsenal are title contenders.

But, ahead of the game, he said the following about Arsenal and Odegaard ( quoted by Metro):

“I think they’ve been fantastic. I think the players are growing, they’ve got the right players in.”

“I know [William] Saliba came back, [Gabriel] Jesus has been a fantastic signing, and I think [Martin] Odegaard, the way he plays at this moment in time, [Kevin] De Bruyne is a decent player, but he’s not far off him in terms of performances.”
