Martin Odegaard established as chief creator of Arsenal after Norwich masterclass

| Today Headlines | Fox News

Arsenal were following Buendia this summer and he was on their shortlist as they looked to bring in a new No.10.

In the end, the Argentina international went to Aston Villa and Arsenal bolstered their ranks by signing Odegaard from Real Madrid for around £ 30million.

Based on the past few weeks and this Carrow Road game, it’s money well spent, with Odegaard blossoming into the team’s chief creator.

Arsenal were rampant in this 5-0 win over struggling hosts and Odegaard was at the heart of it, pulling Norwich’s defense all over the place. He finished the game with two assists, but you can find his imprint on almost everything Arsenal has done in the future.

The Norwegian struggled a bit at the start of the season and there was a time when Alexandre Lacazette kept him away.

Now, however, Odegaard is one of the first names on the roster and Lacazette leads the line instead of running as a No 10.

It’s a formula that seems to work very well and in the last five games, which coincide with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s withdrawal from the squad, Arsenal have scored 19 goals.

It’s a definite comeback and they left Carrow Road with five to their name, and that tally didn’t exactly flatter them.

Bukayo Saka took them out and fled after six minutes, returning the ball home after Odegaard picked him.
