The Shining Light For Arsenal From Dire Everton Loss

Arsenal have not been consistent in recent weeks; consistency has gone out the window, and it has now reached the point where, as soon as one player gains form, another loses form. 

After a disappointing 3-2 loss to Manchester United, Arsenal were thrashed 2-1 by Everton, which could have been 4-1 if not for offside calls. The defeat exposed many flaws in the current Arsenal squad, but it also revealed some positives. Tomiyasu, Martinelli, Tierney, and Odergaard were all proactive, but Odergaard stood out the most.

Odergaard shone in a game where Arsenal had almost no bright performances. He stepped up in Smith-Rowe's absence. He was the only Arsenal player keen on pressing when Everton had possession. He was getting into strategic positions where he could go for the goal. The only problem was that Xhaka and Partey were not keen on playing the ball in his path and only did so four times.

Odergaard was undoubtedly the only Arsenal player who was eager to receive the ball, was the only player who looked threatening with the ball, and his goal was undoubtedly the result of his brilliant attacking instincts, which saw him strategically position himself to score a trademark goal similar to the one against Manchester United.
