Ian Wright explains why he’s very worried about Arsenal ahead of Man Utd clash


Ian Wright is worried about his former side Arsenal ahead of their Premier League clash with Manchester United next weekend.

The Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Leicester City on Sunday, with Jamie Vardy scoring the only goal of the game 10 minutes from the end.

Arsenal took the game to the away side for most of the night at the Emirates, but were caught on the break by the Foxes.

Wright believes Manchester United play in a similar way to Leicester and reckons Arsenal will need to come at them, in the same way they did against the Foxes.

But in doing this Arsenal could leave themselves very exposed at the back – like they were when Leicester hit them on the break – and could be punished by the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

“You look at Manchester United as well who are another team that will want to play on the break,” Wright told  Premier League Productions.

“You’re going to need to be able to pass through team, be able to break them down.

“Manchester United will do the same thing [vs Leicester] and they’ve got even better players going forward, more than just Vardy.

“It’s a tough one, we knew Leicester were going to be tough and we know Manchester United are going to be tough.

“Arsenal are going to have to dig in and find a way of getting results without scoring the perfect goal.”
