Micah Richards believed that the £30m Arsenal star was exceptional, surpassing even Jorginho’s performance yesterday…



Micah Richards was highly impressed with the performance of a £30m Arsenal star, considering him to be exceptional and surpassing Jorginho during Sunday’s match. As the Gunners secured a significant win against Liverpool in the Premier League title race, Mikel Arteta’s team has now closed the gap to just two points from the top. Arsenal capitalized on Liverpool’s subpar performance to secure a convincing 3-1 victory at the Emirates.


Mikel Arteta’s team has closed the gap to just two points from the top of the table following their impressive 3-1 victory at the Emirates. Arsenal took full advantage of Liverpool’s lackluster performance in the game.


Jorginho’s return to the side received high praise, with Gary Neville naming him as the player of the match. Declan Rice also described Jorginho’s performance as unbelievable after the game.


However, Micah Richards, speaking on The Rest Is Football, expressed his admiration for Martin Odegaard’s performance in the win. Despite Jorginho receiving the player of the match award, Richards was truly impressed by Odegaard’s passing ability, composure on the ball, and overall outstanding performance. He believes Odegaard is back to his best after a slight dip due to his injury.


The £30 million man delivered an exceptional performance as the captain. Throughout this season, Odegaard has been somewhat disappointing, but he truly rose to the occasion on Sunday.


According to Whoscored, no other player completed more key passes than the Norwegian. Additionally, he made two tackles during the victorious match.


Jorginho’s performance was particularly impressive because it was a bold decision to include him in the team, as Richards pointed out. Arsenal fans were aware that Odegaard needed to step up if they wanted to secure the win.


Without a doubt, Odegaard successfully fulfilled that expectation on Sunday. As a result, Arsenal now has a remarkable opportunity to position themselves as strong contenders for the title once again.
