Owen Hargreaves Has Identified One Gunner Who Resembles Roy Keane: His Actions Speak For Themselves

Martin Odegaard has been significantly underappreciated this season. While all eyes have been on Granit Xhaka's form and the fear of what will happen if Thomas Partey is injured, Odegaard has quietly delivered in Arsenal's midfield, not only through his brilliance with the ball at his feet but also through his leadership as Arsenal's captain.

When Arsenal needed someone to step up against Wolves last weekend to ensure they went into the World Cup on a high, the Norwegian did just that, scoring a brace in a 2-0 win at Molineux. Following his weekend masterclass, Premier League pundit Owen Hargreaves gushed about what a perfect player the former Real Madrid man is. "Odegaard is the club captain," said Hargreaves. "When you watch him. You would say that he isn’t your traditional captain. Your Roy Keane or your Paul Ince; that generation.

"But the young captains now are different. They lead by example. I think he leads by his habits on the training pitch. He’s an extension of Mikel Arteta.

"Quiet, a super footballer, and he’s reliable. I think he is a symbol of what they are producing at Arsenal. He’s really consistent."

How impressed have you been with Odegaard?
