'He's talented but his work-rate is incredible'

You'd be forgiven for not knowing it was Martin Odegaard's first north London derby.

Our Norwegian playmaker was at the heart of our play from the first to the last minute inside Emirates Stadium, and scored the crucial equaliser to inspire our comeback.

"He's got a real stamina and he's so talented, but his work-rate is incredible," our Mikel Arteta said.

"Not only that, he's intelligent. The timing of his runs, when he presses, his body shape. I'm really impressed and he had an incredible performance today. He's giving us something different and it's making us better."

But it wasn't just Odegaard who caught Arteta's eye.

"I think Emile had a magnificent performance again as well. I think he shows not only quality but his personality, his intelligence on the pitch, his energy. He gives us something different. Today in a derby you need some individual performances and for sure he had one."
