Wright names three players who have let Arsenal down

Mon 14 December 2020 | 14:19

The Gunners legend believes that Arteta’s team has reached the ‘crisis point’.

Arsenal 

were defeated by 

Burnley 

in their Sunday Premier League match at Etihad. 

Granit Xhaka

 was sent off after facing a second yellow card in the 56th minute and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s own goal just half an hour later secures the win for Burnley. Arteta has been criticized for his team’s lack of creativity in the midfield and Ian Wright believes that the coach must consider changing his squad by replacing the likes of Granit Xhaka, 

Willian, 

and 

Alexandre Lacazette

.

“The manager has stuck with him [Xhaka] for a while.” 

Wright told 

Premier League Productions

.

“He has shown a lot of faith in him. I think he has done the same with Willian. He has done the same with Lacazette.

“There are players now that should be getting a blast at it now. Throw in Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith-Rowe coming back on-loan and doing well at Huddersfield last season. Joe Willock. Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

“You need to do something different because if it carries on like this and he continues to have faith in these players, and they are not delivering, then I don’t know what’s going to happen next.

“It’s a time when you need experienced players the most.

“I feel like at this particular moment, he has had a lot of faith in them and they have kind of let him down up to this point.

“I think Arsenal are at a real crisis point in terms of confidence. It’s going to be even lower now and it’s going to take something to build them up. This is why it needs some freshness. Just blood some fresh impetus.”

Arsenal will play against

Southampton

on Wednesday as they are currently in 15th place in the League table.
