Former Arsenal great, Ian Wright praised Martin Odegaard and Calum Chambers for their performances in the gunner’s thrilling 3-3 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard was brilliant too, and the Gunners legend urged his former team to make his permanent loan from the Spanish club in the summer.

“In the first 35 minutes,  Arsenal were nowhere near it and it was a testament to West Ham that they did punish them,’ Wright told Premier League Productions

“But in the end, the character that they [Arsenal] showed was magnificent, Chambers,  Martin Odegaard is somebody that they need to make sure they make that signing if they can. Because he really did come to the fore today.

“What you want to see from him [Odegaard] is a player that has got unbelievable potential and ability and you want to see him in a game like that where he’s going to be in the meat and bones of the game where he’s got to pick the ball up and does what he does.

“He wants the ball and plays it, he’s very efficient with it. He done it in a game where Arsenal needed it.

“Like we saw on so many occasions he chose the right pass, fantastic today. He was magnificent.”

On Chambers, Wright added: ‘We’re talking about somebody who’s not long come back from an ACL and that is tough to come back from that kind of injury, he’s been working hard.

What’s great about Mikel Arteta is that he will give you a chance, he’s given him a chance. In the Burnley game he was brilliant, the same thing with this game he’s come in, he’s staking a claim.

“That’s what Arsenal needs, they need that kind of player in the backup position who will come in and do a job like that, brilliant today.”
