Arsenal suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of Julio Enciso, Deniz Undav, and Pervis Estupinan. As a result, they are now four points behind Manchester City, who still have a game in hand against Brighton on May 24.
However, City can clinch the championship earlier with three points against Chelsea at home on Sunday.
“Yeah, it feels like [the title chase is over],” a dejected Odegaard told Sky Sports. “It is going to be very difficult now we have to be honest. It is tough to take.
“It is not a good feeling at the moment. The way we played, particularly in the second half, I don’t know what happened to be honest. It feels like there is no hope now.
“In the first half we did a lot of good things and had moments to create big chances but we gave them more and more momentum in the second half. We wanted to come here and continue like we have in the last two games, get a good result and keep pushing. It is a big disappointment.
A comparison of Arsenal’s schedule and performance against Man City
“I don’t think mentality was an issue. We were good going into the game but in the game was a different story and we have to accept it and learn from it.”
Aaron Ramsdale, the goalkeeper, acknowledged before to the game that he had been taken aback by the amount of pressure City had placed on Arsenal.
“I thought it would’ve been more plain sailing, if I’m honest,” Ramsdale reflected on the title race. “I thought after so many wins throughout the season, you could probably relax. It’s been enjoyable, but I thought it would be more easy on day to day, but the pressure has been quite high.”
