Brentford head coach Thomas Frank believes Arsenal are currently the second-best English club at the moment and says Martin Odegaard is close to Man City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne.

The North London giants have made a fine start to the new Premier League campaign with wining five games from their opening six Premier League matches.

 

Odegaard, meanwhile, has been one of the top performers in Mikel Arteta’s team, who were beaten for the first time this term by Man United on September 4.

‘We are playing against a very good side,’ said Frank.

 

‘When we beat them a year ago, I think they were not in the same place as they are now. It was still a fantastic win for Brentford against a club as massive as Arsenal and against top players.

‘Doing it on Sunday would be completely different because for me, now, after [Manchester] City, they are the best performing team in the league.

‘I think they’ve been fantastic. I think the players are growing, they’ve got the right players in.

‘I know [William] Saliba came back, [Gabriel] Jesus has been a fantastic signing, and I think [Martin] Odegaard, the way he plays at this moment in time, [Kevin] De Bruyne is a decent player, but he’s not far off him in terms of performances.’
