Mikel Arteta has praised Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard for taking charge of the game against West Ham. The Gunners performed a comeback from three goals down to take a point at London Stadium. Arsenal went three goals down after 32 minutes on Sunday afternoon but Odegaard's persistence proved pivotal to the comeback.
"I think he had an incredible performance, he was very intelligent the way he read the game, the way he effected the game and again he showed how much he wants to win," said Arteta. "When everyone was a little bit trembling, he gave us that composure on the ball and he created chance after chance.
"I love talented and creative players that all the time are willing to take that ball and make things happen, that are mobile and also hard-working. He is one of them. We have some others with different qualities but it's true that Martin is now giving us a different level on certain things that we didn't have."
