Martin Odegaard responds to Ten Hag ahead of Man Utd v Arsenal

Martin Odegaard has responded to Erik ten Hag’s comments about the reverse fixture between Arsenal and Manchester United.

That game ended in a 3-1 win for the Gunners, but it was a fixture that had some controversies.

Arsenal won it with two late goals, but could they have been behind before they scored those goals?

Manchester United feel Rasmus Hojlund could have had a penalty, and a disallowed Alejandro Garnacho strike should have stood.

As his team struggles this season, Ten Hag has often talked about the scenarios in that Arsenal game, and as the teams prepare to meet again in the Premier League, Odegaard was asked if it will motivate his team.

The Norwegian midfielder said, as quoted by Express Sport:

‘Honestly, no. I don’t think so.

‘It’s like any other game we are playing for at the moment. I don’t think we need any extra motivation at the moment. I think there is enough there. We know what we are playing for. We know the task. We have to win every game and that is what we are going to try to do.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

We do not need extra motivation to beat anyone at this stage of the season, and we expect our boys to get the job done when we face United at Old Trafford.

  1. It seems like many people have convinced themselves that the Man United game is already in the bag for us..
    This is Man United we are talking about here and they are at Home where we always struggle.

    1. Whilst it would be totally foolhardy to think that a win against ManU is a forgone conclusion at the weekend, watching Palace having a total jolly against them shows how far they’ve fallen

    2. Do you expect our captain to be scared simply because it is old Trafford. That’s the confidence to get the job done that is the most important thing it doesn’t matter if it’s man u or man city, Etihad or old Trafford

  2. I just don’t like or respect the United manager. Hopefully we do to him what we do best, i’m confident we have all the tools to go there and condemn them to a heavy defeat!

  3. What a shambles united were tonight and I’m just hoping casemero and Evans plays for them this coming weekend.
    Where on earth was the fight and pride from united?
    My only worry is that they will have a point to prove come this weekend and try to kick us of the park!!
    But all things being equal, we should hammer them.

  4. Arsenal need to careful with this one. We should be too strong for MU. However, they are a team that have picked up points in strange situations this season.
    They have been shambolic at times yet drawn or won games when the opposition have somehow been unable to put them away.
