In response to Takehiro Tomiyasu’s contentious dismissal, Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard speaks.

The decision to dismiss Takehiro Tomiyasu during Arsenal‘s victory over Crystal Palace, in Martin Odegaard‘s opinion, was “harsh.”.

The Gunners captain acknowledged, however, that moving forward, he and his teammates must “be careful” and “adapt” to the new time-wasting regulations.

On Monday night at Selhurst Park, Arsenal defeated Palace 1-0 thanks to a penalty kick from Odegaard.

Although Tomiyasu was given his marching orders and given a second yellow card with just over 20 minutes remaining for a soft tug on Jordan Ayew.

However, the Japan defender’s first caution was what everyone was talking about after he, Kai Havertz, and Gabriel Martinelli took a throw-in together in excess of 23 seconds, one of many time-wasting tactics Arsenal used throughout the game.

This season, officials have been asked to take a much stricter stance against time-wasting, a decision that seems to have divided the football community.

The referee’s decision infuriated Mikel Arteta, but Odegaard responded calmly, saying: “I don’t know if it’s difficult but it’s new rules so we have to adapt.”.

“The first yellow card was harsh; I don’t believe he [Tomiyasu] was trying to take a long time, he just didn’t have anyone to play to,” the author said.

Even though it’s challenging, we must adjust.

We have no choice but to accept that as reality. You have to be careful because it’s simpler to receive a yellow card these days, and that goes for me as well.

We should keep it in mind, but I don’t believe we should focus too much on the rules. We must remain concentrated on the game. ‘.

Along with Brighton and Manchester City, Arsenal is one of only three teams to have won both of their opening contests. This is the ideal start for a team looking to end its wait for a league championship after finishing second last season.

Odegaard continued, “The beginning of the season is always challenging; it takes some time before everyone finds their rhythm and top form.

Therefore, it’s essential to secure the first three points before building on them. We’ll continue to improve with each game, and I’m thrilled to have won.

It was challenging; we had to work hard and persevere. We were aware of this prior to the game that you must be willing to endure hardships in order to come here. That was a fantastic job that earned us three points. ‘.
