Ian Wright claims Odegaard, Partey, and Aubameyang were all poor for Arsenal

Arsenal picked up a point thanks to a 0-0 draw with Brighton yesterday but Ian Wright was left feeling deflated with the performance after last week’s epic win over Tottenham.

The Gunners never quite got going at the AMEX and had Aaron Ramsdale to thank late on for a fine save. The ‘keeper once again showed his worth, producing more than one good stop on the day.

In fairness, Arsenal did have their moments. They failed to make the right decision in key times and that, ultimately, cost them the chance of snatching a winning goal.

And Wright, speaking on MOTD last night, felt that three of Arsenal’s so-called key players let the side down a bit.

Why Does One Of The World's Poorest Countries Sponsor Arsenal?

“I thought that Aubameyang unfortunately today was poor. I thought Partey was poor. Odegaard didn’t play very well,” Wright told Gary Lineker.

Odegaard, a £30m signing from Real Madrid this summer, couldn’t get into the game at all, while Partey struggled with the pace of the game at times.

For Aubameyang, it was yet another off day in a season full of them.

TBR’s View: Odegaard and Arsenal big guns have to step up

It can’t just be left to the young and exciting talents to get Arsenal picking up results this season. The likes of Smith Rowe and Saka have been excellent, but they need help.

Aubameyang and Partey, in particular, need to be helping out more and leading this team.

Wright is right in his assessment here. Arsenal need more from their big players and need it more consistently.
