“But we won the match” Odegaard hints at frustration after Aubameyang cost him a goal

Martin Odegaard could have had a goal for Arsenal in their 1-0 win against Watford before the international break, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang denied him while in an offside position.

Odegaard’s shot looked certain to go in, but Auba decided to help it in while in an offside position.

Most Arsenal players are with their national team now for the international break and Odegaard was asked about the incident. He hinted at being frustrated.

He told TV2: “It was a bit sour, because I saw it so well from the side, that it was on its way in there. 

“I knew as he touched it that he was offside. It was frustrating, but we won the match. That was the most important thing. Then it’s fine. Had they scored at the end, it would probably have been a little heavier.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Strikers score goals and it’s completely normal that Auba was desperate to get one in this incident.

As Odegaard has rightly said, the most important thing is that the Gunners secured all three points from the game.

The Norwegian has struggled to play for the club recently as Emile Smith Rowe continues to hit top form.

He will hope his performance for Norway in this international window helps him return to the team when the players report back from the break.

  1. Hoping Odegaard can get going soon to get in on the action of our summer signings playing well. I mean, he essentially did score a goal, so that’s good news lol.

  2. It was hitting the post, it wasn’t going in the behind goal camera confirmed that. Not an accurate article again.

  3. At least the real CAMs are scoring goals, unlike the previous one who hopped, skipped, jumped along the pitch and then sat home watching butterflies. Ode is class and will come good, but at the moment the momentum is with Laca.

  4. I really do rate Odegaard but he has been so underwhelming so far.
    Looks so lightweight and out of his depth at the moment.
    Hope he can bulk up a bit because right now he looks like a 16 year old boy out there.

  5. I fear for Odegard to become the New Ozil…Big name talented but no end product in terms of goals and performances……

    1. More like I hope he doesn’t get scapegoated like Ozil did. Ozil was top chance creator in the PL for almost all of his seasons here, but because our end product wasn’t good, all we saw was his lack of skill in other areas.

      1. Bob, nobody complained when he was top creator and doing his job. It was when he stopped creating, stopped shooting, stopped working, stopped everything except picking his monster wage up for nothing, people started on him. He was a leach and i have noticed he is having the same problem at his club Fenerbache now, just to reinforced his awful attitude.
