Merson compares Nketiah to the Arsenal icon

Former Arsenal striker Paul Merson said Eddie Nketiah’s performance on Wednesday was reminiscent of Ian Wright.

Nketiah got a rare start from Arteta and his manager’s faith was rewarded with two goals. Merson praised the youngster after the win at Stamford Bridge but still questioned whether or not he had a future in north London.

“Eddie Nketiah reminded me of Ian Wright against Chelsea and he should play every game for Arsenal until the end of the season,” he said. “He’s a better finisher than Alexandre Lacazette and should score more goals so I would leave him in there and let him run in the team.

“But he’s not the long-term answer. He could play against Manchester United tomorrow and be a 4/10. There’s no consistency.”

Impact of Aubameyang exit assessed

Arsenal struggled to find the back of the net ahead of Wednesday’s win against Chelsea.

As a result, some supporters lamented the decision to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave the club to join Barcelona, especially considering the Gabonese international’s good start in Catalonia. But David Alexander Hughes doesn’t think Aubameyang’s recent exploits should inspire regret at Arsenal.

“The Gabonese international receives significantly more shots on average at Barcelona (3.3 per 90) than at Arsenal (2.9 per 90) and those shots tend to come from a much closer range for the Catalans (10.6m ) as well as Arteta’s men (14.2 meters),” he said.

“Given that Aubameyang is shooting more shots per game, and up close, it’s easy to see how he’s improved his scoring rate since joining.”

Arteta sends support to Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo will be back in the United squad for Saturday’s game following the death of his newborn son.

The 37-year-old confirmed the devastating news earlier in the week and understandably missed out on the 4-0 away defeat Liverpool on Tuesday as a result. Arteta said he couldn’t understand the struggles Ronaldo and his family are having to face.

“I don’t think I’m allowed to talk about something like that because if you don’t experience it, you can’t express or go through the pain on the same level,” the Gunners boss said.

“What this country and the league have shown with what happened at Anfield the other day I think is extraordinary. Sport should lead to finding a unity on a human level that is sometimes lacking.”
