Arsenal and Norwegian captain, Martin Odegaard boasted that the Premier League leaders would pull a lot of surprises this season.
Arsenal currently stands points above the EPL defending champions – Manchester City, after a 4-2 victory at Brighton Albion.
Odegaard said, “Of course, it’s a good moment for us,” said Odegaard.
“Being top of the table is good but, as I have said many times, we have to stay calm, keep working hard, stay in the moment, and not focus too much on the table.
“I think the best thing about it is that we still have a lot to improve, we can still get much better in many areas of the game.
“We can improve a lot and that’s what we’re going to do, just keep working hard and make sure we get even better.”
Martinelli gave Arsenal a three-goal lead following a sumptuous assist from Odegaard.
“All of the goals gave me a lot of pleasure,” Odegaard commented on his 39th-minute goal.
“The most important thing is that the team scores and if it’s me or someone else, I don’t care too much.
“I’m just happy to help, so all of the goals were good.”

Arsenal will be playing Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Odegaard said he has not engaged fellow compatriot, Erling Haaland on title challenge.
“No, not too much, to be honest,” said the 24-year-old. “I’m just happy for him doing well, scoring goals for fun.
“He’s smashing it, so very happy for him and that’s it.”
