Arsenal failed to reach to the final of the Europa League on Thursday evening after a disappointing 0-0 draw with Villarreal.
Mikel Arteta’s side spent much of the game looking some way off the pace against a determined opponent but ultimately neither side was able to add to the 2-1 scoreline the Spanish side picked up in the first leg.
Unfortunately Martin Odegaard didn’t really do much of either as he spent much of the game drifting in and out of action.
While the Real Madrid loanee is perfectly impressive with his touches and short passes, he often struggles to take a hold of games and Thursday’s clash was no exception.
Over the course of the game the Arsenal winger managed just three crosses from open play, not a single shot on target and just two key passes. Which is well below the standards the young player has set for himself in North London.
In a match that Arsenal could have undoubtedly won with a bit of precision and accuracy in the final third, Saka characterised a clumsy and error-prone performance.
Indeed, that much was evident from the manner in which the Gabon international struggled to create chances and, ultimately, score the goals necessary to win the game and reach the final.
Over the course of the match Aubameyang had just 14 touches of the ball and managed just three shots towards goal before he was subbed off after the 79th minute.
