Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has weighed in on Jamie Carragher’s recent criticism of Martin Odegaard’s celebrations following Arsenal’s victory over Liverpool in the Premier League.

The Gunners secured a 3-1 win against Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium, with goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Leandro Trossard overshadowing a Gabriel Magalhaes own goal. However, it was Odegaard’s post-match celebrations that drew scrutiny from Carragher, who questioned the midfielder’s actions.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher expressed his disapproval, stating, “Just get down the tunnel, you’ve won a game. It’s three points, you’ve been brilliant, you are back in the title race, get back down the tunnel. I am serious – honestly.”

Responding to Carragher’s comments on the Seaman Says podcast, Seaman offered a light-hearted perspective, finding amusement in the Liverpool legend’s remarks. “I did have a little chuckle last night when I was listening to Jamie Carragher having a go at Odegaard and the photographer,” said Seaman.

Reflecting on the celebrations, Seaman highlighted the significance of the win for Arsenal and the pressure surrounding the match. “Arsenal lose that game and we are out of the title race. We are eight points behind Liverpool and Manchester City have still got two games in hand, so that would have been devastating,” Seaman explained.

Acknowledging the passion displayed by both Odegaard and the club’s photographer, Stuart MacFarlane, Seaman emphasised the importance of the victory to Arsenal’s title aspirations. “I loved the passion. There has been a lot said about Mikel Arteta and the way that we were celebrating. I loved that,” he said.

Despite recognising the intensity of the celebrations, Seaman conceded that they may have been slightly over the top but attributed it to the pressure surrounding the game. “It’s a little bit on the edge, if I’m being honest. You know what I’m like: calm down, accept it! [laughs] – but it’s because of what was on the game. The relief, that’s what it is,” he added.
