Arsenal players need to maintain their composure and focus as they chase the Premier League title into the final day of the season, emphasized captain Martin Odegaard (25) ahead of their crucial match against Everton.

Arsenal currently trail leaders Manchester City by two points heading into Sunday’s last round of fixtures. The Gunners must secure a victory to keep their title hopes alive, while City could clinch their fourth consecutive title with a win against West Ham United.

Arsenal’s aspirations of ending their 20-year wait for the league title suffered a setback after City’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday gave the Manchester side the upper hand.

“We spoke about it the day after (City went ahead),” Odegaard told TNT Sports. “We have to focus on ourselves, we can’t get too emotional about it.

“We have one more game, at home, it’s the last game of the season and our goal and our task is clear, we have to win that.

“We’ll see what happens. That’s our mindset now, win that last game, give the fans a good last game and we’ll see. It’s out of our control, we just focus on our game.”

The Norwegian midfielder said his side have been amazing this season. “We’ve taken good steps and I feel like we’re a much better team compared to last season,” he added.

“We’ve had some really good games, some good results, and we are now there until the last day, to push for it.”

Arsenal finished second in the 2022-23 season, ending five points behind City. Their most recent league title victory came under manager Arsene Wenger during the 2003-04 “Invincibles” season, when they went unbeaten throughout the entire campaign.
