Ian Wright says “Arsenal must learn from Tottenham Hotspur”
Arsenal look set to finish the season with little for their troubles
March 14th, 2016
Former Arsenal player Ian Wright claims that the Gunners need to take inspiration from their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur should they wish to win something this season.
Indeed, the only realistic chance of silverware heading to the Emirates lies with Premier League success, although Arsene Wenger’s men sit eight points behind table-topping Leicester City with just nine games left to play. They were dumped out of the FA Cup at the weekend by Watford and face a huge uphill struggle against Barcelona in this week’s Champions League last-sixteen second leg clash at the Nou Camp, having lost the home leg 2-0.
Wright is of the opinion that a change in attitude is needed over the next few weeks.
“They’re doing stuff that you expect them to do now,” he was quoted as saying. “You want to see them do stuff that you’re not expecting – like win games that they have to win.
“That’s what you want – to see the change. Just like Spurs have got a change about them. There’s no change at Arsenal and it seems like it’s the same old, same old about to happen again.”
Spurs are still in with a chance of ending their lengthy wait for a league title, having last been English champions in 1961. They trail league leaders Leicester City by just two points following their win over relegation-bound Aston Villa at the weekend.
