Arsenal has been struggling this season and managed to get their second win this season against Burnley today in five games they have played. The Gunners have not been that good and lost three games in a row.
The north London side has lost some of the best players in recent seasons including the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. Losing these two great players has greatly affected the Mikel Arteta side which has contributed to the team's game dropping in recent months.
The Gunners are showing some signs of life in the last two games despite winning by a narrow margin. They have a very young squad except for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. Nicolas Pepe, Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka, and Martin Odegaard are some of the best young players in the Emirates and have a promising future.
These young stars are greatly talented and if they could remain in form and Arteta help them get to the top level they could be unstoppable in the future. However, among these players, the star who has been astonishing for Mikel Arteta is Norwegian attacking midfielder, Martin Odegaard.
The 22-year-old star was on loan at the Emirates from January last season until the end of the season from Real Madrid. The La Liga side sold him in the summer to Arsenal on a permanent deal as the replacement for Mesut Ozil.
He has played three games this season scoring three goals and has brought the creativity back to the club. Arsenal is currently rebuilding and needs such a good young number 10 like Odegaard.
The Norway national team captain is one of the favorite players for Arteta and gave him the second win of the season in the Premier League against Burnley. He scored a world-class free-kick today for the Gunners and it could be one of his many at the club. If Odegaard will have fewer injuries and good help from the manager he could be the main player at the club and leave a great legacy.
