Dimitar Berbatov absolutely loves Arsenal's Martin Odegaard after Tottenham masterclass

Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has lauded the performances of Martin Odegaard after Arsenal beat Spurs 2-0 today.

Odegaard continued his fine season for Arsenal by firing in a brilliant second goal for the Gunners. It proved crucial, as Spurs couldn’t find any way back into the game. The finish capped off a fine overall performance from Odegaard again, as he continues to show his class.

And speaking about Odegaard for PremierLeague.com, former Spurs ace Berbatov admitted he was seriously impressed by the midfielder.

“I think those loan spells he had when in Madrid helped him develop and become what he is. Of course he’s very young and he’s going to get even better and mature. But the way he plays, that maturity is even now there.

“We can see the tricks and the turns and the passes. He wants the ball, he’s chasing the game not the game chasing him, he wants that responsibility. And maybe because of all this quality maybe that’s why he is the captain.”

Odegaard has become central to Arsenal’s success this season. He’s now adding goals to his game and as club captain, is repaying the faith shown in him by Mikel Arteta.

TBR’s View: Odegaard the player of the season so far

While Erling Haaland is dominating things in terms of goals being scored, it’s his international teammate Odegaard who is running the show really.

Odegaard is outshining everyone in the league right now. He’s got a bit of everything in his game and Arsenal are a completely different team if he’s not involved.

Kudos has to go to Arteta and Edu for picking Odegaard up. He’s been one of the buys of the last few seasons and at around £30m, now looks a snip. If Odegaard stays fit, then Arsenal will win the league.
