Martin Odegaard's opening goal for Arsenal against Newcastle United was one for the ages.

It was a brilliant effort from outside the box, which gave his team a 1-0 lead in a very important away match. 

In doing so, Odegaard has 15 Premier League goals this season. 

This is the joint-most by an Arsenal midfielder in a single campaign alongside Cesc Fabregas (2009/10).

What makes this special is that both achieved this feat in their first full seasons as Arsenal skippers!

Back then, the World Cup winner from Spain was 22-year-old Cesc during the 2009/10 Premier League season.

In the 27 games he played, he also scored 15 goals and assisted 13. 

Meanwhile, Odegaard's 15 goals have been complemented by seven assists as well.
