Wright says Arteta must drop misfiring Arsenal trio

Ian Wright says Mikel Arteta must consider dropping Granit Xhaka, Willian and Alexandre Lacazette following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley on Sunday.

The Arsenal legend says the trio “have let him down” with their performances and claims the Spaniard should turn to some of the Gunners’ young talent instead.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Wright said: “The manager has stuck with him [Xhaka] for a while.”

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

“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.

“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.”
