🇳🇴 Odegaard on what Arsenal needs to improve

Arsenal's attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard wants his team to show more intelligence when in possession of the ball.

The Norwegian's thoughts came game after the club's 1-0 win over Burnley on Saturday where the former Real Madrid star delivered the winner. The victory marked Arsenal's second win of the season after five Premier League games.

The 22-year-old described sealing the result as war, before explaining what the Gunners need to improve on to become a top team.

"The game was kind of a war in the end. We know their strength. We played their game a little more than our own game," Odegaard told the BBC.

"In the second half they played their game and they’re good at it. We need to be a little bit smarter when we win the ball.

"I believe in this team. Even though we lost some games in the beginning, I’m not too surprised we’ve got some points now," he added.

Can Arsenal keep the winning momentum? Coming up next is lower division side Wimbledon in the EFL Cup on Tuesday, before the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.
