The Norwegian captain scored a brace to help Arsenal move five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Crooks, who had previously criticized Arsenal, has begun to praise them. It’s not the first time he’s singled out a player.
He did the same for Granit Xhaka after previously stating that he dislikes him.
“The more I see this player the more I like him. Cool under pressure, never over-celebrates and, dare I say it, brings a touch of elegance to an Arsenal side that is showing more class than I’m used to seeing from the Gunners.”
“It would seem goals, clean sheets and a touch of sophistication in midfield from Martin Odegaard are combining to keep Arsenal top of the table. “
“I must say I’m finding all this success on this side of north London excruciatingly painful but that will only add to the joy of Arsenal fans. My only hope is that not all teams top of the table at Christmas go on to win the title.”
