Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara walked out of a furious debate about Arsenal star Martin Odegaard.

At the weekend the Norwegian extended his league goal tally to 10 this season, hitting double figures for the first time in his entire career.

Meanwhile, Odegaard has created another six goals for his teammates while captaining Arsenal to the Premier League summit.

The Gunners are five points clear of their nearest challengers Manchester City, and just 11 games away from claiming their first league title since 2004.

And Odegaard has been central to Mikel Arteta’s side’s fortunes. His performances have been so good that Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp claimed the Norwegian has been the best midfielder in the Premier League this season – ahead of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.

Odegaard better than De Bruyne?

After Manchester City battered RB Leipzig 7-0 in the Champions League, O’Hara and Jason Cundy debated who has had the better season – De Bruyne or Odegaard.

Indeed, O’Hara labelled Cundy an “idiot” for throwing his support behind Odegaard.

The former Tottenham midfielder said on TalkSport: “It’s got nothing to do with Arsenal.

“I’ll tell you what’s going on, I’ve sat here for 18 months having to work with this absolute idiot of a man who puts Odegaard in front of Kevin De Bruyne.

“Have you just watched Kevin De Bruyne play tonight? He put on a masterclass.

“You’re telling me if there was a cup final tomorrow, you wouldn’t want Kevin De Bruyne in your team and you’d take Odegaard.

“He’s had a great season, don’t get me wrong, but Kevin De Bruyne has been unbelievable for the last five seasons.”

O’Hara added: “I can’t deal with this anymore, we have to break. I need a coffee. I’ve got to leave the office!”

The pundit then stormed out of the studio.
