Ian Wright has revealed he was “very confused” by Ben White’s defense in Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat by Southampton on Saturday. as he told Premier League Productions (04/16/22 at 15:55).
While Arsenal players struggle to finish their dinner in front of goal, Southampton’s powerful centre-back Jan Bednarek squandered the only chance he had yesterday.
It was the only goal of the game at St Mary’s, with the south coast side clinching a 6-0 win over Chelsea last time out.
As for Mikel Arteta, his Arsenal players are tumbling down the top 4 mountain without safety gear because they have now lost three games in a row.
A few weeks ago the race for Champions League football was still in their hands but now they have handed the keys to their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur despite losing the early kick-off to Brighton.
Nonetheless, this is what Wright made of the goal Arsenal conceded against Southampton.
“He (Bednarek) is doing well,” Wright said. “I’m very confused about what Ben White is doing there.
“I think someone needs to go to Bednarek. Nobody gets out to him and he finished well.
Things are going wrong at the wrong time for Arteta and his players, who now have two of their toughest games of the season ahead of them.
Losses to Crystal Palace, Brighton and now Southampton have really crushed them.
But maybe Arsenal need games where they aren’t considered favorites, like midweek against Chelsea.
The only problem for the Gunners is that they may only be faced with a Chelsea side coming into this Premier League game full of confidence because they first have to deal with an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace.
