Arsenal registered a thrilling 3-1 victory over Liverpool at the Emirates on Sunday and it was not just about the goals; it also featured an unexpected post-match twist. Jamie Carragher expressed his displeasure at Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard, who was in high spirits, as the Gunners enter the title race, following the win.

Odegaard's Lens Swap Upsets Carragher

Arsenal's win over The Reds saw Odegaard steal the show, minutes after the conclusion of the match, by playfully engaging with the club photographer's camera. Jamie Carragher's stern disapproval added an unexpected layer to the Gunners' celebration.

Carragher's On-Air Critique Sparks Social Media Banter

Speaking on Sky Sports, the ex-Liverpool defender said:

"Just get down the tunnel. You've won a game, three points, you've been brilliant. Back in the title race, get down the tunnel. I'm serious, honestly."

Carragher's live critique of Odegaard's celebrations didn't go unnoticed on social media. The back-and-forth banter between Carragher and Piers Morgan, who is a well-known Gunners supporter, highlighted the mixed reactions to the post-match antics.

Resurgence in the Title Race

Amidst the camera controversy, Arsenal's victory significantly tightens the Premier League title race. Goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Leandro Trossard, coupled with Odegaard's lively celebrations, position the Gunners as serious contenders for the coveted title, as manager Mikel Arteta aims to end a two-decade-long wait of the North London club for league glory.

Securing three consecutive victories in the league has propelled Arsenal into a commendable position, currently nestled between the league leaders, Liverpool, and Manchester City, amassing 49 points from 23 matches. However, it's worth noting that Pep Guardiola's side have two games in hand.

The following fixtures this month include two away visits to West Ham and Burnley, before welcoming Newcastle at home. Arteta remains focused on the Gunners' pursuit of domestic triumph but he will also want to improve in Europe as Arsenal prepare for the Round of 16 clash against Porto.
