The race for a place in the top four has been a lot going on – which they consider a lousy start to the season already a definite achievement.

Bruno Fernandes leveled the procedure in the dying breath of the first half, before Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 800th career goal to propel the hosts forward.

But a little magic from Gabriel Martinelli and Odegaard just two minutes later the parity was restored.

The ball bounced off to the Brazilian, who for the first time appeared a straight cross into Odegaard’s path.

The talented Norwegian player just swiped the ball home from 16m with his weaker right foot.

Old Trafford – featuring new owner Ralf Rangnick – was stunned.

Odegaard, along with Smith Rowe and Martinelli, was also Arsenal’s biggest threat in the first half.

At one stage, the former Real Madrid star wriggled his way past three United defenders before knocking out Martinelli, who was unable to make it difficult for the goalscorers.

And after scoring a goal to help Martinelli repay the favor, Odegaard is Mikel Arteta’s favorite pupil…

… In about 15 minutes.

70 minutes into the game, a dangerous ball was made in Fred’s box.

Odegaard rushed in from behind and had no ball anywhere near, knocking out the impressive Brazilian.

Arsenal also have a lot of defence, so Odegaard’s decision is completely confusing.

Initially, the match was started, before VAR intervened – awarded a clear penalty.

Ronaldo jumped high and put the ball into the net, straight into the middle.

Odegaard’s reaction said it all. When the ball was in the net, he jumped and bounced furiously.

In just 15 minutes, he rescued Arsenal and put them on the front foot – before quickly sending them back to earth.

A draw is probably a fair outcome.

But that only made Odegaard’s bloodlust worse.
