Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has called out Ben White and Nicolas Pepe following their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night.

 

 

Wright feels Patrick Vieira’s men were “unfortunate” not to win at the Emirates.

 

Second-half substitute Alexandre Lacazette ensured the Gunners got a point, scoring with the last kick of the play.

 

Goals from Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard had given Palace hope of winning, following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s eighth-minute opener.

 

 

The result stretched Arsenal unbeaten streak to six matches in all competitions and moved Mikel Arteta’s men up to 12th in the Premier League table.

 

But Wright was not impressed with White and Pepe.

 

 

“I think it’s a little bit of a worry for Arsenal because when you look at both goals, we’re not getting defenders to go and engage.

 

“He’s [White] got to get closer to him [Edouard] and he doesn’t do it. They’ve done brilliantly to score the goal.

 

“I think he’s got to get close to him… at no stage does Ben White close that gap. People can say what they want, maybe the goalkeeper or whatever… at no stage does that gap get smaller so why wouldn’t you shoot?,” Wright told Premier League Productions shortly after the final whistle.
