Agbonlahor: Arsenal have four outstanding players in their ranks

Arsenal have a “dangerous” front four and may have finally solved their problems in midfield and defence, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker insisted Arsenal should now “start picking up points and go up the table”.

The Gunners blew their bitter rivals Tottenham away with a 3-1 win at the Emirates at the weekend.

Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe started behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the second time this season.

Saka, Smith Rowe and Aubameyang all scored against Spurs while Saka and Smith Rowe also picked up an assist each.

The only other time the quartet have started together this season was the 5-0 defeat away to Man City earlier last month.

Odegaard moved to Arsenal in January, initially on a loan deal from Real Madrid, before moving permanently over the summer.

The four lined up together in just three Premier League games last season – including the 2-1 win over Tottenham in March.

“Definitely, those four are dangerous players,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“The problem with Arsenal has been behind them, the midfield and the defence. That looks a lot better now.

“I do think that they will now start picking up points and go up the table.”

After losing their opening three Premier League games, Arsenal are on a run of three consecutive victories.

Sunday’s game saw them move level on points with Spurs and into ninth place with the same goal difference as their local rivals.
