Arsenal legend Ian Wright responds to Crystal Palace win with clear message

Arsenal recorded a 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday and the performance left club legend and former striker Ian Wright impressed

Arsenal legend Ian Wright explained what he liked most about the Gunners’ win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Emirates Stadium played host to Arsenal facing their London rivals in the Premier League. In what was the first game after the winter break, Arsenal got a 5-0 win thanks to a Gabriel Martinelli brace, goals from Gabriel and Leandro Trossard and a Dean Henderson own goal.

Mikel Arteta’s side had previously gone four games without a win before claiming victory over Palace. That run also included three straight losses to West Ham and Fulham in the Premier League and to Liverpool at home in the FA Cup.

The win over Palace moved the Gunners up to just two points behind leaders Liverpool before they played Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon. Next up for Arteta and Co. is an away trip to Nottingham Forest on January 30 in the top flight, before hosting Liverpool a few days later.

Wright explained what he liked most about Arsenal’s win over Palace on Saturday. The former striker also believes that the victory could kick-start further wins for Arteta’s team at a crucial point of the season

thought Arsenal played very well [versus Palace],” Wright told Premier League Productions. “They had lost three games on the spin and had to come with real determination and spirit to show they can get back right on track.”

Before putting five goals past Palace, Arsenal had only scored two or more goals once in their previous seven games. That form led to speculation that the club could go into the transfer market to sign a striker before the January window closes.

After spending more than £200 million in the summer, Arsenal will be mindful of their finances when it comes to signing new players due to Financial Fair Play rules. it remains to be seen what business the Gunners will conduct before the February 1 deadline.
