Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard says the players discuss producing “magic” during games.
Reiss Nelson did as much for Saturday’s winner against Bournemouth.
And for that game’s match programme notes, Odegaard recalled Bukayo Saka’s goal to kickoff victory against Everton: “Bukayo’s goal to put us in the lead against Everton was just an unbelievable finish. It took me by surprise when I saw it go in, but that’s the quality he has and what he can produce – even with his right foot.
“I remember he scored a similar one this season against Leeds, so it’s another quality he has. He’s producing so much for the team right now – goals and assists – he’s always dangerous so it was another great moment from him.
“In fact we talk a lot together about producing these ‘magic moments’ as a team. When the match is really tight or the opposition make things tough for you, sometimes you need a magic moment to win the game or change it, and he is certainly someone who comes up with them. It’s great to have him there for us.”
