Last weekend, Arsenal came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1, and Odegaard was in the thick of it. The young Norwegian dominated the game, earning him the Man Of The Match award.
His deflected shot cancelled out Mitrovic’s goal, and a late strike from Gabriel Magalhaes secured Arsenal’s victory.

Micheal Owen, in particular, was blown away by his performance and dubbed him a magician on Premier League Productions. He said (via HITC):
“Those players that can play in those short spaces, they are the real class acts. Anyone can play with loads of space”.
“But you see in tight situations, Odegaard gets played the ball and he throws his leg over just to create another inch of space.
“It’s class, just pure class. Arsenal then get their magic players like that playing.”
