Ferdinand names Arsenal star as his Premier League ‘player of the year’ ahead of Haaland and Debruyne

Rio Ferdinand was thrilled with Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham, and he believes Martin Odegaard is the player of the year so far.

Mikel Arteta’s team is on a 12-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, and they have already moved eight points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

In the Premier League, Arsenal is presently averaging 2.61 points per game. If they can keep this up, they will finish the season with a massive 99 points.

Odegaard was one of the Gunners’ finest performers in their north London derby victory, scoring a fantastic shot from outside the box.

Ferdinand was impressed, and he named the playmaker the best in the Premier League right now. “I’d go so far as to say right now, he’s definitely my player of the year,” he told Vibe with Five.

“Haaland has completed his mission. Don’t get me wrong: he’s been fantastic. If Haaland slows down with the goals and Arsenal wins the league, Odegaard will be my player of the year.”

Odegaard’s effect this season makes it difficult to argue against him. The 24-year-old has led Arsenal to the top of the table and has demonstrated true leadership throughout the season.

So far this season, he has eight goals and five assists in the league. Throughout his last five matches, he has scored four goals and produced three assists. 

Following their victory in the north London derby, Arteta singled out the skipper for praise. He rated Odegaard as “terrific, especially in the first half, I believe he was great” during his post-match press conference.

“He’s really displaying a new kind of presence, the way he’s impacting the game, simply the feeling, the way he moves, what he transmits on the pitch is different and today to do what he’s done here, it’s a tremendous tribute to him.

“It’s wonderful, I’m going in the dressing room and just feeling the pleasure and the closeness around the team and how much it meant for them.

“It’s special and we know that here because of the way we play, the way we behave, the way we are and the way we live together and the unity that we have. “So we must not forget that, because tomorrow we must try to do exactly the same to carry on the form that we have at the moment.” Next up for Arsenal with be another tough test against Manchester United who are currently in fine form themselves.
