Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp and former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink have lauded Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard after his team's recent 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Gunners consolidated their position at the top of the 2022-23 Premier League standings with an away win on Saturday (12 November)
Odegaard, 23, helped his team bag their 12th win of the ongoing campaign with a brace in the second half at the Molineux Stadium. He also completed 43 passes, registered three shots, completed two successful dribbles, won four ground duels, and made seven recoveries.
Speaking on Sky Sports (via Daily Mail), Redknapp claimed Odegaard was a major influence on the Mikel Arteta-coached side. He said, "Odegaard's had a great season, a lot of people talk about different players, if [William] Saliba gets injured what might happen but I think you have to put him in that bracket as well, he's such an influential player for the team, the way he controls the game."
