Martin Odegaard’s girlfriend Helene Spilling has his shirt number rotated on her Arsenal kit

Fans think they’ve worked out why Martin Odegaard’s girlfriend Helene Spilling has his number eight shirt rotated on the back of her Arsenal jersey.

Spilling, who is a Norwegian professional dancer and TV personality, was at the Emirates on Tuesday night as Arsenal moved three points clear at the Premier League summit.

Goals from Leandro Trossard, Kai Havertz [2] and Ben White [2] sealed an emphatic 5-0 win over struggling Chelsea as the Gunners continued their title charge.

Thousands celebrated Arsenal’s latest victory at the Emirates, including Martin Odegaard’s girlfriend Spilling, who was filmed dancing along to Kai Havertz’s ‘Waka Waka’ chant.

Later on in the evening, the 28-year-old posted a picture of herself wearing Odegaard’s shirt number on Instagram – and fans picked up on the fact that her number eight shirt was rotated.

To some, infinity can symbolise a more modern interpretation of eternity and everlasting love. To others, it draws from its ancient understanding as the symbol of perfection, duality and empowerment.

Here’s how fans on social media reacted to the below Instagram post.

One commented: “She turned the jersey number into an infinity sign… very thoughtful,” while another added: “The 8 infinity is hard.”

A third wrote: “Ok, turning that 8 into infinity because Odegaard is your partner is kinda adorable.”

Odegaard, meanwhile, has been one of Arsenal’s best performers this season. Gunners boss Mikel Arteta believes the Norwegian midfielder is setting the standard in their dressing room.

“He’s made huge steps, his presence, the way he’s behaving himself in front of the group and the standard that he sets is outstanding,” he said earlier this month.

“He’s got a lot of players as well to support him and the rest to follow with him.”

Arteta added: “He’s a really important player – we needed that balance and as well the chemistry that certain players have because it’s how they train as well, and how we build those connections and relationships, and Martin is there to connect everything well in how we play.”
