Wenger must put faith in Lacazette says Arsenal legend 0

Posted on November 15, 2017 by David Nugent

According to Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger must show faith in French striker Alexandre Lacazette this weekend in the north London derby against Tottenham.

The 26-year-old joined the Gunners from Lyon in a club-record deal that cost the north London club £52million. The striker has made a bright start to life in England, scoring seven times in 12 appearances.

However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to bench the forward in games at both Liverpool and Manchester City. Lacazette came off the bench to score against City and surely has to start in the derby.

Arsenal host Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday in the hotly-anticipated north London derby. Ahead of the game, Ian Wright has sent a message to Arsene Wenger’s players, with the contest turning into a must-win game.

Arsenal fell to a disappointing 3-1 defeat in their last game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. While it is in no way embarrassing to lose to City, it was a game they had to win to maintain their slim title hopes.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus saw the home side to a comfortable win, with Arsenal only able to hit back through substitute Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal have been able to arrest their recent slump with a string of very impressive wins that has seen pressure relieved on both the team and the manager.

Wins over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and Norwich in the Carabao Cup have allowed the London side to maintain their challenges in all three competitions, while it has banished the memory of their awful 2-1 loss to Watford the week before.

The Gunners are now turning their attention to their Premier League match with Swansea, which is a must win.

Arsenal won a thrilling contest on Tuesday as they defeated Championship side Norwich 2-1 in the Carabao Cup. The win secures their place in the quarter-finals of the competition and relieves some of the pressure on the side.

Following a torrid 2-1 loss at the hands of Watford, Arsenal have managed to turn their form around as they have claimed wins against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and now Norwich in the cup.

Sean Dyche 33/1 to be next Arsenal boss as club legend champions his case 2

When club legends speak, it is hard to ignore them sometimes. Arsenal legend Ian Wright stated recently that he would take Burnley boss Sean Dyche as a replacement for Arsene Wenger, but that he believes Dyche is more likely to end up as England boss instead.

Sean Dyche is a very promising boss

For me, Sean Dyche has done an excellent job at Burnley. He has managed his resources and players superbly. The Clarets now look like an established Premier League side. The fact that they are unbeaten from away games at Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton is a testament to Dyche’s management.

Arsenal signing Cohen Bramall a great story 0

I have to be honest when I heard that Arsenal were signing a player from non-league I thought it was a joke. Every transfer window the Gunners are linked with one man and his dog, but signing a player from Hednesford Town sounds like something somebody would write in a work of fiction.

However, the Gunners have taken the chance on 20-year-old full-back Cohen Bramall and good luck to the lad. I cannot say I have seen much of the left-back, but his highlights reel is pretty impressive, which does not tell us that much about a player these days.

Arsene Wenger will fulfil contract at Arsenal 0

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes that Arsene Wenger will fulfil his contract at the Emirates and then leave in the summer of 2017. The French boss has come in for a lot of criticism this season, including from myself for the Gunners failings this season.

Will leave next summer

Former-Arsenal striker Wright speaking on BT Sport stated: “I think that it will run its natural course. In 2017 he will probably leave.

“We saw another couple of banners [against West Ham]. When you see the season we’ve had – in the way that this season’s gone – the fans and everybody will be disappointed.”

Ian Wright slams Wenger for not listening to Steve Bould 6

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes that club’s defensive crisis could have been avoided had manager Arsene Wenger accepted advice from his assistant Steve Bould.

The Gunners have been conceding goals for fun this season, leaking five in last two fixtures, and it is team’s defensive frailties that have been one of the main reasons for the poor run of results.

Club legend Ian Wright believes that Wenger has a perfect man who could sort out the shaky defence in Steve Bould, but the Frenchman appears to be disregarding his assistant’s suggestions.
