Gary Neville hails Arsenal star


Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has said Martin Odegaard is the best midfielder “in his position” ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Tottenham on Sunday.

Odegaard is enjoying an impressive campaign with 11 goals and nine assists in all competitions.

The Norway captain delivered another good display in the Gunners’ 5-0 win over Chelsea on Tuesday evening.

It has led to Neville hailing the 25-year-old as the standout performer in his midfield role.

When asked about Arsenal’s overall performance, Neville told his podcast: “Very good, excellent in fact.

“They were outstanding in that first 25 minutes against Aston Villa when we were there a couple of weeks ago, some of the football.

“And Odegaard is mesmerising at the moment, I think he’s become the best in that position in terms of the way in which he plays.”
