Arsenal got back to winning ways at the Emirates Stadium against Brighton on Sunday afternoon. It took Mikel Arteta’s side until the second-half to break the deadlock, despite having 16 shots on goal in the first 45 minutes.

Mikel Arteta’s men dominated the game and produced the perfect display which was needed after the disappointing defeat to Aston Villa last time out. Arsenal will be happy with the three points, but happier with the way they played against one of the best teams in the league.

Arsenal’s captain and birthday boy on the day Martin Odegaard was one of the best players on the pitch. The midfielder made four key passes throughout the game, with one very memorable coming in the first-half.

The Norwegian produced a moment of magic when he played a brilliant pass with the outside of his left boot to Bukayo Saka. The pass was weighted perfectly to create a great opportunity for his teammate which unfortunately Gabriel Martinelli couldn’t take.

Clinton Morrison, working as a pundit for the BBC, has suggested that the pass from Martin Odegaard was one of the passes of the season.

Clinton Morrison speaking on Martin Odegaard: “The pass is outstanding, one of the passes of the season! He put all sorts of spin on that and it was a great little cutback from Saka and Martinelli really should be making it 1-0.

“But the pass from Odegaard, outstanding football.”

Clinton Morrison wasn’t the only one stunned by Odegaard’s pass this afternoon. Sam Dean of the Telegraph described it as “one of the sexiest passes you will see all season”.

The Arsenal captain hasn’t been at his best at the beginning of the 2023/24 campaign, however that’s no denying his ability and his importance to this Arsenal team. No other player in an Arsenal shirt can do what Martin Odegaard does on a weekly basis.

He’s always one of the most hardest working players each week and he has this great ability to make the players around him look better.

With Martin Odegaard finding form and the Arsenal attack slowly beginning to click, the Gunners fans will be hoping they can go one better this season and win their first Premier League title in 20 years.
