Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli left amazed by £30m Arsenal player’s display at Molineux last night
The attacking duo took to Instagram to praise their teammate after he bagged a brace against Wolves last night.
The Gunners secured an important three points after a difficult first-half in the Midlands. Mikel Arteta’s side struggled to break-down a resilient Wolves defence but found a way through thanks to Odegaard’s attacking awareness.
The £30 million man was in the right place at the right time on two occasions and produced a cool finish for his second goal. And he has earned some praise from his teammates in Saka and Martinelli.
Saka and Martinelli amazed by Odegaard
Odegaard posted on Instagram last night following his vital brace at Molineux.
He wrote: “Perfect way to end the first part of the season.”
His teammates flocked to congratulate him, with Saka leaving five fire emojis underneath the post.
Martinelli wrote: “Crack,” alongside a heart emoji.
Reiss Nelson, Fabio Vieira and Eddie Nketiah also left comments underneath the post, praising their captain for his impact last night.
Odegaard has put in some dazzling displays for the Gunners so far this season and has become a real leader on the pitch.
The 23-year-old has also started to add more goals to his game, with his brace last night taking him to six goals this season.
The Norwegian playmaker is just one goal off equalling the number he managed in 36 games for Arsenal last season.
Arsenal are flying at the moment and will now head into the World Cup five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can pick back up where they left off when they return to action on Boxing Day.
