Arsenal captain Odegaard: I've played three times at Chelsea and won them all

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard says victory at Chelsea was deserved.

Odegaard said the side approached the game in exactly the right way away to a top six rival, and deserved to take all three points.

“I think it was a big win,” he told Arsenal Media after the game. “I think we deserved the win and we controlled the game.

“We were the more dominant team throughout the whole game, and we got the goal in the end. The way we protected the box, and the goal after that, and also the smartness we have on the ball to keep it in difficult situations.

“This is the way we want to play, you know? Also away from home, to be able to control these games and be the more dominant team.”

The win was their third in a row at Stamford Bridge in the league, the first time they have done that since 1974.

“Yeah I’ve played here three times and I’ve won all of them,” Odegaard added. “So, we have to keep going this way of course. Yeah but, again a big performance and I’m very proud of the team, and everyone.”
