It’s great for a youth-driven team to come this far: Odegaard

Arsenal have maintained their position at the top of the points table since the beginning of this season. But the Gunners’ dream of the title is almost over. Still, Arsenal are breathing down City’s neck. Martin Odegaard commented that it is great that this youth-driven team has come this far.

Fabian Schar’s own goal and Martin Odegaard gave the Gunners a 2-0 win over hosts Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday night. With this victory, the 2nd place club from one point behind Manchester City, who was leading the race for the title, put pressure again.

A month ago, Arsenal was at the top of the points table with a gap of eight points. But the club has won only one of the last 5 matches in the Premier League. That’s why Michael Arteta’s side slipped from the title race.

Odegaard said after the match, “It’s great for a young team like us to come here. Doing what we did was huge. This proves we can go far.’
