Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard has sent fans a special message after the Gunners lost the Premier League title to Manchester City.

The north Londoners took the title race to the final day of the season following an incredible campaign under Mikel Arteta.

The Emirates outfit won 28 of their 38 league fixtures to rack up 89 points, just two points behind champions, City.

With only two points separating the two teams going into the final round of fixtures, the title winners had to be decided on the final day of the campaign.

Arsenal needed a win in their fixture against Everton at the Emirates and hoped West Ham United would do them a favour against the Citizens to stand any chance of lifting the crown.

However, despite seeing off the Toffees 2-1, the Hammers went on to lose 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium, with the result enough to help City reclaim the title.

Odegaard sends message to Arsenal fans

Reacting to the title loss, Odegaard thanked Arsenal fans for the support throughout the season, promising to give the title bid a bigger push next season.

“You all believe in us now. I can’t wait to come back after the break," the Norwegian said via Fabrizio Romano.
“We have to use the break to come back even stronger, even more hungry, and push to win everything," he added.

Mikel Arteta breaks silence on title loss

In related news, Sports Brief also reported on Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta breaking his silence after his side lost the Premier League title.

In his post-match conference, the Spaniard admitted a second-place finish is not good enough but vowed to lead the Gunners to glory next season.

"Don’t be satisfied. We want much more than that—and we are going to get it," he said, as quoted by Arsenal's official X account.

Arsenal have not tasted Premier League glory since the 2003/04 season under Arsene Wenger.
