Arsenal fans wowed by Martin Odegaard magic during win over Crystal Palace
Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 3-1 at Selhurst Park as they left it very late to defeat the Eagles. Afterwards, supporters took to Twitter to rave about Martin Odegaard for his brilliant assist.
Nicolas Pepe bagged a brace and Gabriel Martinelli scored the other as the Gunners left it very late to secure a victory. Christian Benteke equalised for Palace in the second half.
Arsenal had looked like being forced to settle for a draw but a sublime pass from Odegaard gave Martinelli the chance to fire Mikel Arteta’s team in front during injury time.
Pepe put the seal on the win shortly after but it was the superb piece of brilliance from the Norwegian that had Gunners fans drooling with delight.
The 28-cap starlet was in fine form and if he can produce such skill more often than not, Arsenal would welcome his return next season.
Odegaard earns £80,000-a-week at the Bernabeu and it remains to be seen what their plans are for the player who is undoubtedly talented.
Following last night’s game, supporters were keen to congratulate the youngster on a fine moment which ensured a victory for the Gunners.
Here is what they had to say about Odegaard on Twitter.
Odegaard has that special quality in him I think his injury has really hindered his progress
