Arsenal star told he is undroppable by club legend

An ex-Arsenal man has been full of praise for a current player.

Arsenal have two areas of their squad which are very much filled with heavy competition.

At the back, Aaron Ramsdale is fighting it out with David Raya to be the Gunners’ no.1

Further forward, meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah are battling to be the main striker.

Nketiah has played more games this season due to Jesus’ injury but now the Brazilian is back, Mikel Arteta has a tough choice on his hands.

And when speaking about Arsenal’s current strikers recently, Ian Wright labelled Gabriel Jesus as undroppable:

“If I’m Eddie (Nketiah) and I’m in Eddie’s shoes,” Wright told his podcast. “I make sure that when I’m on there whatever half chance I get I take it and I’m ruthless with it.

“Because if this guy is fit, he must play. He brings it to another place. I’m not saying this as a knock to Eddie, but he has to do something like that so people aren’t so worried when Jesus isn’t around Jesus is an entity on his own with the way he’s playing.

“His work rate, his finishing, everything he does: that is his main strength. Eddie is taking chances. He could’ve had a couple more at the start of the season to put him into that, and he has to do that, because if Jesus continues like he is there is no conversation, he’s so good.”
