Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was full of praise for one Arsenal star after the Gunners’ emphatic 5-0 win over London rivals Chelsea on Tuesday evening.

Unable to hide his smile after such a dominant performance, Arteta was full of praise for his captain, and the Gunners’ man of the match, Martin Ødegaard.

The Norwegian was at his creative best, offering a performance for the ages as he registered two assists and was at the focal point of all things good for Arteta’s side.

Speaking after the game, Arteta said: “We saw, Edu insisted, that he was [a] player with huge talent that we could develop. He keeps growing. He’s done it [represent the club] in an amazing way. So natural.”

The Spaniard would have been delighted with such a high-level performance from his captain, especially given what Arteta had said in the lead-up to the match.


In his pre-match press conference, Arteta had said: “Fulfil his potential? Hopefully not. Hopefully, there is still more to come. He’s still very young and he’s made huge steps In the last few seasons. He [has] got a massive role at the club and hopefully he can keep growing.

“He’s our captain. He’s one of our main players and when you look at the impact he has with us daily, it’s amazing. So we are really happy to have him.”

The win sees Arsenal move three points clear of Liverpool in second, who have a game in hand, and four clear of Manchester City, who have two games in hand, and will be a massive source of confidence ahead of Sunday’s North London derby.
