Martin Odegaard’s remarkable performances for Arsenal last month, reward him first individual accolade, since making the move to the Emirates in January.
Despite no prior experience of English football, Odegaard, 22, quickly established himself as a key cog in Mikel Arteta’s midfield, brought quality, composure and an ‘incredible’ work-rate.

The 22-year-old named the Gunners’ Player of the Month, beating out competition from Alexandre Lacazette and Kieran Tierney, in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Odegaard will be hoping of continue his remarkable display when Mikel Arteta’s side play host to Premier League champions Liverpool at Emirates stadium on Saturday evening.
