Martin Odegaard responds to critics after celebrating win with cameraman.


After Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over 10-man Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium, Martin Odegaard has addressed the critics who accused the team of excessive celebration.


Odegaard emphasized that Arsenal will maintain a humble approach throughout their pursuit of the Premier League title, despite moving within two points of Jurgen Klopp’s leaders.


Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka kicked off the scoring, but an unfortunate own goal by Gabriel Magalhaes leveled the playing field for the visitors just before halftime. In the second half, a mix-up between Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk allowed Gabriel Martinelli to regain Arsenal’s lead.


Substitute Leandro Trossard secured the victory in stoppage time, following Ibrahima Konate’s red card. The celebrations were led by Odegaard, who even took the camera from the club’s photographer to capture the jubilant reactions. However, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool defender, expressed his dissatisfaction with the post-match celebrations. He urged the team to focus on their title contention and maintain discipline.


Jamie Carragher, the former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports pundit, expressed his dissatisfaction with what he witnessed. He urged the players to quickly make their way to the tunnel after securing a victory and three crucial points. Carragher emphasized the importance of staying focused on the title race and maintaining discipline.


Later, on his social media platform, he reiterated the need for enjoyment while remaining disciplined. In a symbolic gesture, Carragher changed his profile picture to one featuring Odegaard using a camera. However, the Arsenal captain, when questioned about potentially excessive celebrations after a significant triumph, refused to apologize.


The Norwegian international firmly believed that celebrating a victory is an essential part of football, and it is only natural to express joy when achieving success. He acknowledged the significance of the win and the unity within the club, highlighting the collective effort of players, staff, and supporters. The Arsenal team remains humble, continues to work hard, and prepares for future challenges while cherishing their triumphs.


Liverpool’s recent loss to Burnley marked only their second defeat in the league this season. Jurgen Klopp acknowledges that bouncing back from a loss can be more challenging when it occurs infrequently.


“We haven’t experienced a significant number of defeats lately, and we are aware of that,” he stated.


“This implies that dealing with defeats can be a challenge, not just for us but for all of humanity. In our dressing room, we don’t expect to effortlessly overcome Burnley or any other opponent.”


“Burnley is a determined team that fights for their objectives. They possess a lot of talent, but they have been unlucky at times. However, since it’s a home game, we have the opportunity to turn things around, starting with the first step.”


“After Sunday’s match, no one will be crowned champion, and no one will be relegated as far as I know. Therefore, we have the chance to shape our own destiny. Let’s wait and see what unfolds.”
