After the official release of the lineup on Twitter fans criticized Mikel Arteta over the Inclusion of Midfield star Martin Odegaard who was signed during the January transfer window.
A match as important as Arsenal against Manchester city required Mikel Arteta trying out his best players but him starting Odegaard proved he didn’t really trust his Experienced Midfield players to get the job done.
Fans preferred Dani ceballos took his place in the squad but with Arteta you can never Predict as he must have saw something great in the Norwegian to have included him in a game as important as this.
This is what fans had to say about Arteta decision.
I would sign Martin Odegaard if there would be a possibility to do so. He's the combination of those two, and has a great overall attitude! Maddison's price is also much higher due to "English hype tax", as I say… 😀

@RequestABet Martin Odegaard and Kevin De Bruyne to have 2+ shots on target from outside the area each.
