‘Just An Average Player’ ‘Not Good Enough’ Fans Criticise Arsenal Ace Who Failed To Make An Impact Against Villarreal

Arsenal attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard did not make much of an impression as the Gunners slipped to a first-leg defeat against Villarreal last night.

The Norwegian was pretty ineffective before he was hauled off in the second half by manager Mikel Arteta and some fans on Twitter weren’t particularly kind about his display after the game:

To be fair to Odegaard, there are some mitigating circumstances that explain his below-par performance. The 22-year-old is still recovering from an ankle injury which means he is unlikely to be 100% fit.

On top of that, Arteta got his tactics wrong on the night, leading to Arsenal being overrun at times and consequently meaning Odegaard had limited time on the ball.

However, saying that, he still needs to be a lot more influential in games, considering he is playing in the no.10 role. Supporters will be hoping he puts in a much better display in the second leg next week.
