Arsenal midfielder Odegaard calls for calm after flying start to the season

Martin Odegaard has called for calm from his Arsenal teammates after a flying start to the season.

The Gunners have won their opening three games of the season, with Odegaard scoring a double in the win over Bournemouth over the weekend.

"It has been a good start; I think especially compared to last season," said Odegaard.

"It looks a bit better this time! We are happy at the moment; three wins and three good games. We are scoring a lot of goals, so of course we are happy.

"We have to stay calm and keep working hard and look for the next one already and try to win that one.

"I think a lot of things have changed. I think we have improved so much and it's a bit strange to think it's only one year ago. I feel like it's a long time ago.

"We have improved so much, and we worked so hard in training to improve the way we play, and to improve all the basics in our game and I think you can see that on the pitch now.

"We understand each other a lot better. I think the system works really well, everyone understands their job on the pitch, and I think that's the main thing, that the system is working well.

"And of course, we have signed some good players as well, so that helps."
