Paul Merson has compared Arsenal star Martin Odegaard to Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Paul Merson said: “Martin Odegaard has taken Arsenal to another level this season. He’s got a swagger about the way he plays and moves, while he’s also added goals to his game.
“Odegaard has been around for a while, so it’s easy to forget he’s only 23. I like Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount, Phil Foden and the likes, but Odegaard is someone who has already made a massive impact this season.
“He is Arsenal’s captain, he plays in a position where he has to make things happen and he’s done just that as Arsenal find themselves at the top of the Premier League table with 18 points from seven games.”
Odegaard has scored three goals in seven games across all competitions but failed to provide a single assist to his teammates while Fernandes has one goal and one assist in eight games.
