Odegaard is the leader of the Premier

Arsenal had a feast to say goodbye to the year against a brave Brighton. Arteta has created a perfect machine with two engines: Odegaard and Thomas. And with a lot of space for talent and that’s what the gunners, who welcome the New Year with a seven point lead over the ogre City, who punctured against Everton. ANDhis Arsenal is no longer a surprise but a reality. And what a reality because it’s nice to see the players play bad boys of Arteta.

Arsenal soon took out the cotillion and in minute 2 they were already winning thanks to a Bukayo Saka that is sweet Everything she touches she puts inside… and she’s only 21 years old. It was the preamble to an exquisite half hour in which Martin Odegaard directed the leader’s performance. It was the Norwegian who put 0-2 in the goal of a Robert Sánchez, who was screaming for correcting his own. Deserved, since the offensive volume of the gunners it was a torrent of danger. The Norwegian celebrated by ‘shooting’ a triple. It’s what the stars have.

Nketiah made it 0-3 as soon as he returned from the locker room and seemed to seal the match. It only seemed, because in the Premier there is never an easy game. And this Brighton doesn’t know the word surrender. Despite the fact that he was losing 0-3 and 1-4, he always gave the feeling of danger over the Ramsdale goal. De Zerbi is still in the process of giving his entity to the team, after the post-Potter era, but as soon as he hits the key, he has a lot of raw material to dream about. And that he noticed a lot the absence of the world champion, Mac Allister, and the extraordinary Moises Caicedo, sanctioned. And despite the casualties he competed to the maximum. another devil gunnersMartinelli, made it 1-4, after another precious gift from the former Real Madrid midfielder with a superb pass from midfield. A work of art.

It seemed like the final sentence, but Brighton never raised a white flag, they always believed in a comeback. The very young Ferguson made it 2-4 and Mitoma, author of the first goal, put honey on the lips of the fans of the Amex Stadium, but the VAR annulled what would be the 3-4. There couldn’t have been a better game to say goodbye to the year than this Brighton-Arsenal. Intense, exciting and with great moments of good football. For 2023, Arsenal asks for the same line. At the moment he is doing well: 43 points out of 48 possible.
