Odegaard’s brace sends Arsenal five points clear at the top

Two goals from Norwegian captain Martin Odegaard sent Arsenal five points clear at the top of the Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners who were away at Wolves had an open chance to stretch the lead after their closest and fierce rivals Manchester City were beaten by Brentford.

Even though both sides were goalless as at the end of the first half, Mikel Arteta’s boys dominated the entire half except situations where Wolves pulled off threatening counter attacks led by Adama Traore.

Granit Xhaka was substituted early in the first half following a stomach upset and was replaced by Portuguese playmaker Fabio Viera.

The former Porto man did not disappoint as his chip from the wing found both feet of Saka and Odegaard before the captain claimed his first of the clash.

The Norwegian was at it again when a deflected ball met him before striking well to the far left side of the goal post beating Jose Sa.

Arsenal will now extend their lead at the top to December as the league takes a break to pave way for the World cup.
