Wright thinks Willian has been negative

Thu 03 December 2020 | 13:12

Wright has talked about Arsenal’s next Premier League match and some the team’s players.

Arsenal’s

former star thinks

Willian

has been negative with the way he plays and he shouldn’t be used against

Tottenham

. He also thinks some other changes are necessary against Tottenham.

Arsenal and Tottenham will meet in their next league match and

Wright

is afraid that if nothings changes in the team, they would be in trouble against Tottenham.

Here is what he told Wrighty’s House Podcast:

“I’d try to throw something else into the mix, Reiss Nelson or even [Bukayo] Saka on the right.

“But Saka’s going to be on the left so I’d put Reiss Nelson on the right instead of Willian because we know what Willian’s going to do.

“For me he’s been a little bit negative with the way he’s been playing, a lot of backwards passing.

“You need somebody who can at least get back and progress the ball.

“If Saka can go and really put pressure on [Serge] Aurier, that’s where I think, if we’re going to get any kind of joy, then I think Saka’s got to go up there and put pressure on him, then [Granit] Xhaka can pull in on the left, just to put that body in there, then [Mohamed] Elneny should hold.

“Going into the north London derby, I’m always nervous about it simply because for me it is one of the best games, I enjoyed everything about it.

“And when I went to Arsenal it was the game which meant the most to the fans and at the time to the players because we had a lot of players who came through that derby from the age of nine or 10.

“This is the first one I’m going to where I am afraid.

“I’m afraid simply because of where Tottenham are at the moment and we can’t ignore where they are at the moment, they’re in the ascendency.

“This is as afraid as I’ve been for a north London derby as I’ve been for a while and they’ve got Mourinho managing them. He wants to embarrass us.”
