Ian Wright Names The Player At Fault For Arsenal’s First-Half Disaster

Ian Wright Names Player At Fault For Arsenal's First-Half Disaster

It was an awful evening for Arsenal at Merseyside on Saturday as they were demolished 5-1 by Liverpool, and legend Ian Wright wasn't pleased with one player in particular.

The Gunners went to Anfield on the back of a 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion and actually took the lead when academy graduate Ainsley Maitland-Niles netted his first senior goal for the club.

Things got bad just after the half hour mark as Mohamed Salah found himself unmarked to square for Sadio Mane and he made no slip-up from close range to make it 3-1.

It was after that goal which provoked an angry reaction from Wright and he had a few choice words for Stephan Lichtsteiner.

“You know something, if this was a crime scene Lichtsteiner's fingerprints would be all over everything that goes bad for Arsenal at the minute!” he said on Twitter.

“His fingerprints are all over it!”

The Switzerland international hasn't had the best of festive periods as it was his blunder which led to Brighton's equaliser on Boxing Day and he played the ball off Shkodran Mustafi in the build up to Firmino's first of the evening.

Arsenal face Fulham in a London derby on New Year's Day where Unai Emery will be demanding improvement from Lichtsteiner and co.
