Unbelievable Martin Odegaard and Bruno Fernandes stat has stunned Arsenal and Man Utd fans

Unbelievable Martin Odegaard and Bruno Fernandes stat has stunned Arsenal and Man Utd fans

Man Utd and Arsenal's playmaker's stats have been compared and fans are stunned.

Fans cannot believe a stat involving Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes.

Odegaard has arguably been Arsenal’s most important player this season under Mikel Arteta, starting in 25 out of 28 Premier League games.

The 25-year-old continues to hit new heights following his move from Real Madrid in 2021, with six league goals and six league assists as Arsenal seek to end Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the division.

Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes has been one of the few shining lights in a difficult season under Erik ten Hag. The Portugal international has four goals and six assists to his name with United facing a real fight to finish in the top four and secure Champion League football next season.

While both players are their team’s respective creators, fans have been left stunned when a particular statistic came to light.

According to Statsmuse, Odegaard could afford to pass the ball directly to an opponent 150 times and he would still retain a higher pass completion rate than Fernandes.

Fans were left stunned at the massive gulf in passing accuracy when comparing the two midfielders.

One wrote: “150 is crazy.”

A second wrote: “Levels to playmaking.”

A third wrote: “Bruno should be in conversations with Djemba Djemba not Odegaard.”

A fourth added: “There is no bigger indication than this to understand that Bruno is declining massively.”

Odegaard helped Arsenal progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 14 years by defeating Porto on Tuesday night.

After the win, he said: “When I came here I believed in the project, in the club, what they were doing, everything around the club, I believed in it - and now we are doing well.

“We just have to keep pushing each other and make sure we get a little bit better every day.”
