Meanwhile, in a match at Etihad Stadium, league champions Manchester City played against Arsenal to a 0-0 draw.

As a result, Arsenal remained two points behind the league leaders, while Manchester City stayed in third place with 64 points.

“We want all the three points, we tried the best to get the win but in the end we couldn’t do enough and we take the point. Any team in the world would miss Saliba, we’re lucky to have him, glad he’s fit, brilliant performance and a brilliant player,” Odegaard said.
