Odegaard has demonstrated a genuine career renaissance at Arsenal despite having Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey playing beside him in midfield. His energy and composure on the ball will play a crucial role in his captaincy.
As Arteta and Odegaard look to the future, a new attitude to the captaincy is a positive move for a side that is still figuring out its place in the Premier League hierarchy.
