Introduction And Recent History
Martin Odegaard first joined Arsenal on an initial six-month loan deal from Real Madrid in January 2021. He quickly established himself as a regular under Mikel Arteta and made 14 Premier League appearances in the second part of the campaign for the Gunners.
Clearly, his impressive showing during his loan spell in north London was enough to convince Arteta to make a permanent swoop for the Norwegian playmaker, and Arsenal announced a deal to land Odegaard on a permanent basis August 2021.
Odegaard featured regularly for Arsenal during the 2021-22 campaign and he was officially announced as the club’s new captain in July 2022 following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s controversial departure from The Emirates.
Mason Mount is a product of the Chelsea FC youth system and he earned his breakthrough into the first team at Stamford Bridge in 2019 under Frank Lampard.
After having impressed during a loan spell at Derby County in the 2018-19 season under Lampard, Mount enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2019-20 at Chelsea FC, featuring in all but one of the club’s Premier League games that term.
Mount has continued to be a regular fixture in the Chelsea FC team even following Lampard’s departure from Stamford Bridge in January 2021.
Odegaard vs Mount – Recent League Form
Let’s now start to compare how Odegaard and Mount have performed in recent seasons by taking a look at their league form.
Having broken into the first team at Chelsea FC in 2019-20, Mount has slightly more Premier League experience under his belt than Odegaard, who didn’t make his first appearance in the English top flight until January 2021.
During his initial loan spell at Arsenal from Real Madrid in the second half of the 2020-21 campaign, Odegaard started nine games and made a further five appearances from the bench in the Premier League, scoring one goal and making two assists.
After his transfer was made permanent in the summer of 2021, Odegaard continued as a regular fixture in the Arsenal team. During the 2021-22 season, Odegaard started 32 of Arsenal’s 38 Premier League games, making a further four substitute appearances.
In total, he scored seven goals and made two assists in the Premier League that season as Arsenal finished fifth in the Premier League table.
Mount, meanwhile, enjoyed his breakthrough season under Lampard in 2019-20. That season, the England international started 32 of Chelsea FC’s 38 Premier League games and made a further five appearances from the bench. He scored an impressive seven goals and made five assists in the league that term.
The following season, in 2020-21, Mount started 32 games and made a further four appearances from the bench in the league, scoring six goals and making five assists.
Mount’s most impressive season to date in the Premier League came in the 2021-22 campaign. That season, he started 27 games in the top flight and made a further five appearances from the bench. He scored 11 goals and made 10 assists for the Blues in the top flight.
So, the numbers show that the pair have both established themselves as regular fixtures in the starting line-ups at their clubs. Mount has a bit more Premier League experience under his belt and also boasted the more impressive numbers in terms of goals and assists in the English top flight at the time of writing.
What About In Europe?
Let’s now take a look at how the pair have performed on the European stage recently.
The first thing to note is that Odegaard is yet to make an appearance for Arsenal in the Champions League due to the Gunners not having qualified for the competition in recent seasons.
That being said, the Norwegian did make six appearances and score one goal in the Europa League for Arsenal in the 2020-21 season, with the Gunners being knocked out by eventual champions Villarreal that term.
Prior to that, Odegaard also made two appearances in the Champions League for Real Madrid in the 2020-21 campaign.
Mount is the far more experienced player of the pair in the Champions League. He made his debut in the competition for Chelsea FC in the 2019-20 season, when he notched up eight appearances, including six starts.
By far his most memorable season in the Champions League came in 2020-21, when he scored two goals and made two assists in 11 games to help Chelsea FC to win the title for the second time in the club’s history. In the 2021-22 campaign, Mount scored one goal and made two assists in seven Champions League outings.
So, clearly Mount has far more European experience under his belt than Odegaard, with the Englishman having won the trophy with Chelsea FC in 2020-21, and Odegaard having only made two appearances in Europe’s elite club competition at the time of writing.
