Martin Odegaard reveals Arsenal dressing room reaction to title chase ending

Martin Odegaard has been discussing Arsenal’s failed title push.

Arsenal spent the majority of 2022/23 sat top of the Premier League with a decent lead over Manchester City.

However, the Gunners drew three games in a row vs Liverpool, West Ham and Southampton.

They then lost a crucial clash with Manchester City to put the Sky Blues in the driver’s seat.

The final nail in the coffin came on Sunday, though, as Arsenal succumbed to a 3-0 defeat vs Brighton.

Following that match, Martin Odegaard has revealed the reaction of the Arsenal dressing room:

“It is not a good feeling at the moment,” he said. “The way we played, particularly in the second half, I don’t know what happened to be honest. It feels like there is no hope now.

“In the first half we did a lot of good things and had moments to create big chances but we gave them more and more momentum in the second half.

“We wanted to come here and continue like we have in the last two games, get a good result and keep pushing. It is a big disappointment [in the dressing room].

“I don’t think mentality was an issue. We were good going into the game but in the game was a different story and we have to accept it and learn from it.”
