EPL: They’re Not Same Players Anymore – Emmanuel Petit Worries About Arsenal Duo

Arsenal legend, Emmanuel Petit has expressed worries over two of the club’s stars Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka.

Petit feels both Odegaard and Saka are ‘not the same players’ this season.

Both players were star performers for the Gunners last term, producing many goals and assists for Mikel Arteta’s side in the Premier League last season.

But their form has somewhat dropped in the current campaign.

“My main worry is players burning out by not getting enough rest because that has cost Arsenal over the last couple of seasons; they have lost some really important players to injury,” Petit told Lord Ping.

“I think the same thing has happened a little bit this season. Odegaard is not the same player as he was last season at the moment.

“He looks a bit sloppy in everything that he is doing, and he looks tired mentally and physically.

“It is not easy to play every three days and to also play for your country. I’m very worried about Saka [too].

“He plays in nearly every single game – I can’t remember the last time he missed a game for Arsenal – and you can see that he is not playing at the same level as he did last season.”
