Martin Odegaard was disappointed after Arsenal’s loss to Everton. The Norwegian midfielder put the Gunners ahead at halftime, but Everton rallied after the London side failed to increase their lead and took all three points at Goodison Park. Arsenal suffered their third loss on the road and Odegaard made no secret of his sadness after the loss. “It is difficult to accept.”
“I think in general we were not at the level we needed today,” Odegaard told ‘Sky Sports’ after the loss. “We had some good times, but we have to do a lot better. We should have been better. It’s hard to explain. That’s the way things are sometimes. It is difficult to say exactly what happened. We have to do better when we have an advantage. We stopped playing and gave them the game they wanted. “
When asked if he thought a mentality problem was to blame for the Gunners giving up their lead, the 22-year-old said “I think so. When you are winning 1-0, you are afraid of losing the victory and in my opinion that is what we have done wrong today. You are going for the second goal and that was the intention, but we have not achieved it on the field, “said the Norwegian.
