Arsenal captain, Martin Odegaard fired the North London side back to the top of the Premier League as the Norway midfielder’s double inspired a 3-1 win against a horrible Chelsea on Tuesday night. 


Mikel Arteta’s side had lost control of the title race following last week’s 4-1 defeat at Manchester City.


However, the Gunners registered their intention to push City all the way to the wire with a much-needed first win in five games.


Odegaard’s brace was followed by a Gabriel Jesus strike as the hosts raced into a three-goal before half-time at the Emirates Stadium.


Noni Madueke’s second half goal was no consolation for Chelsea’s wretched performance.


Arsenal are now two points clear of second placed City and while Pep Guardiola’s men remain favourites to win the title, the north Londoners have at least applied a little pressure on the champions.
