Arsenal captain, Martin Odegaard is feeling bullish on the Gunners’ Premier League title hopes.
Arsenal squandered a two-goal lead for the second successive week and missed the chance to move six points clear of Manchester City after being held to a 2-2 draw at West Ham United.
The Gunners took a seventh-minute lead when Gabriel Jesus tapped in his fourth goal in three matches from Ben White’s cross.
The north London side doubled their advantage just three minutes later, Martin Odegaard volleying in from six yards after being picked out by Gabriel Martinelli.
Said Benrahma halved the deficit for West Ham on 33 minutes from the penalty spot and Jarrod Bowen netted the equaliser on 54 minutes, two minutes after Bukayo Saka missed a penalty for the visitors.
Odegaard is not losing sleep over the setback and believes the Gunners’ destiny is still very much in their hands.
‘We have to remember we are still top of the League with everything in our hands. The same mindset, same mentality to make sure we win the next one.’ he said.
