Ian Wright has revealed that he will prefer the services of German star Mesut Ozil to that of Nigerian star Alex Iwobi during the Tottenham vs Arsenal game in the English Premier League on Saturday at the Wembley stadium.

The Gunners will be hoping to secure all maximum points in the Tottenham vs Arsenal game as they continue their fight to secure a top-four spot that will see them return to the UEFA Champions League after two seasons of being away in the Europa League.

The Arsenal legend have declared that it will be ideal for head coach Unai Emery to trust the former German international ahead of the Super Eagles winger.

Stating his preferred players to start Wright said; “I think he should play Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Lacazette in front and maybe Ozil behind them as the three and then you can have Guendouzi, Torriera, and Xhaka in the midfield three but I'm not sure what the coach is going to do but this is what I will like to see with Ozil's form.”

Despite losing their last two games in the Premier League, the former Three Lions and Arsenal star has stated that Arsenal needs to be careful against Tottenham and must be ready to take advantage of the inconsistent Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

“Bournemouth was terrible and Tottenham would not be giving them the time and space.

“I feel that Arsenal needs to go at them because they are a bit shaken having lost their last two games.


“Arsenal needs to take every advantage of the form and inconsistency of Lloris,” Wright said.
