Martin Odegaard's stellar stats in Norway bode well for Arsenal ahead of Norwich

The creative numbers amassed by Arsenal star Martin Odegaard against Gibraltar on Tuesday night have caught the attention of the club’s fan base.

The first weeks of the new campaign, of course, have proven disastrous in the red half of North London.

Despite having splashed considerably over the summer, Mikel Arteta’s men have so far failed to rack up a single Premier League point, at the back of a trio of matches.

First it was a 2-0 loss at the hands of newly promoted Brentford, before a similar result was obtained in a home match with capital rivals Chelsea.

And finally, last weekend, it was a frankly embarrassing 5-0 beating at the hands of champion Manchester City.

Arsenal, in turn, sit at the bottom of the Premier League table, without even a goal to their name.

This weekend, however, will see the perfect opportunity for Arteta and company. to get things back on track.

This comes with the Gunners set to host Norwich City, also without a point on the board in the English top flight, on Saturday afternoon.

And, as described above, before the Emirates showdown, one of Arsenal’s summer additions on Tuesday reminded club fans of exactly what it could bring to the table not just in three days, but in the future. usually. .

The player in question? Martin Odegaard.

Norwegian midfielder Odegaard, of course, sealed his return to the Emirates at the end of last month, this time permanently, after a somewhat unpredictable period on loan in the English capital during the second half of last season.

He has already posted an assist in two appearances in Mikel Arteta’s men’s colors, en route to a 6-0 League Cup rout of West Brom.

And, 24 hours ago, Odegaard’s creative abilities were on full display once again.

Norway welcomed Gibraltar to Olso on Tuesday, for the nation’s final qualifying match for the World Cup.

And while it was Erling Haaland who ultimately stole the show thanks to a hat-trick in the Norwegians 5-1 win, Odegaard also garnered attention for all the right reasons, racking up no fewer than 12 key passes over the course of the 90 minutes:
