Kjetil Knutsen, speaking to the press, praised Arsenal, singling out Odegaad and Jesus as “simply world-class.” He stated:
“During the break we talked about how we were a bit passive. We stopped the ball and did not take advantage of the spaces we had.”
“In the second half we looked a lot more like we should. But they are not kind to us when they put on Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard. Then we meet quality. It’s world class, quite simply.”
