Odegaard responds to claims Arsenal are under pressure

Arsenal has spent most of this season at the top of the Premier League table and continues to lead the standings ahead of the important months of the season.

Mikel Arteta’s side hasn’t won the league since 2004 and hasn’t played in the Champions League since 2017, so it has been a remarkable turnaround.

Having finished fifth last season, the Gunners wanted to end this term inside the top four places, but they could achieve even more if they keep winning matches.

Considering how young the average age of the Gunners squad is and the inexperience in the group, Arsenal should be under pressure.

However, the club’s captain Martin Odegaard insists they are enjoying the pressure that comes with leading the standings.

He tells Arsenal Vision Podcast:

“To be honest, we enjoy the pressure.

“We feel that people believe in us. To feel that people take us seriously is a good thing. We are where we want to be and we want to fight to win things, we want to be at the top, it’s where this club should be.

“We’re in a good position at the moment but we have to stay calm, we have to stay humble, we have to keep working hard. There are still so many things we can improve. That’s one of the best things, you know, we can always get better.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Odegaard has been a calming influence in this Arsenal team, which makes it unsurprising that they are enjoying the pressure of the title race.

This Gunners team has won nothing yet, but it is hard not to be excited about the performance they are delivering at the moment.

  1. I’m more worried about this bogus FA charge from the game against Oxford than I am about the players feeling pressure from being top of the table.

    I’ve got no problem if the FA want to stamp out any attempted influencing of the refs but this double standard is infuriating. The odds of Arteta picking up a red card in the next five games must be pretty short.

    It was bad enough when it is just the media (we celebrate too much, Arteta is out of his box too much). Hopefully Arsenal contests the charge and it brings a positive siege mentality to the squad.

    1. There must be a conspiracy to distract Arsenal at this juncture ! Hope our team gives a damn to to it and concentrate on achieving our target, all the best Gooners 👍

  2. The kid is right we are really in a beautiful place, can’t remember when was the last time have felt this good being on Arsenal fan.

    Its really an exciting time hearing the names link to us, Mudryk arrival will inspire confidence in an already good team that is on the high, his inclusion on the match day team is going to trigger a massive response on the pitch even if he’s s just sitting on the bench.

    The kid is right if this is pressure, might as well we enjoy it
