2. Martin Odegaard – CAM – 86 Overall
Odegaard had his fair share of critics coming into last season. Given the captain’s armband and pressure to orchestrate Arsenal’s identity in attack, Odegaard established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders alongside Kevin De Bruyne. Scoring 15 goals and assisting eight times in 37 league appearances, Odegaard has become pivotal to how Arsenal play. His linkup on the right side with Saka and Benjamin White is something Arsenal fans can’t wait to see each matchday. Odegaard even earned Player of the Season honors from the club. There was even speculation among pundits that had Arsenal done the unthinkable and dethroned Manchester City, Odegaard would be in contention for Premier League Player of the Season.
He was 84 overall last season, but is poised to become Arsenal’s second walkout alongside Saka this season.
