Ian Wright slams Partey, Aubameyang’s Brighton performance

Ian Wright believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Thomas Partey were both ‘poor’ in Arsenal’s goalless draw with Brighton on Saturday. And slammed Arsenal’s inability to launch effective counterattacks in their goalless draw.

Partey saw a few shots go high and wide and struggled to dictate the tempo of the game in the middle of the park. While Aubameyang failed to register a shot on target for Arsenal. And was replaced in the 72nd minute by Alexandre Lacazette. Mikel Arteta’s side struggled to create clear-cut chances at the Amex Stadium.

While at the other end Aaron Ramsdale delivered another impressive display to help keep Brighton at bay. The Gunners were fortunate to come away with a point from a clash that Brighton largely dominated.

Arsenal has scored just five goals in their seven league games so far this season. Their fewest at this stage of a campaign since 1986-87. And Wright put their failure to add to that modest tally against Graham Potter’s men down to ‘an off day’ for Aubameyang.

And Gunners legend Ian Wright hinted the Frenchman should have started due to his superior link-up skills. Still described the draw as a ‘fantastic point’ for a young Arsenal side. ‘This kind of game suits him [Lacazette] more. He links the play better. We didn’t punish them and it was in those moments [on the counter] that we lacked quality,’

Ian Wright continued.’In the end, I think it’s a fantastic point for Arsenal with the way the team is, it’s a young team, it’s a good point, it’s much better than I thought it would be in the end.’ ‘It would be easy to get carried away with that result last week [the win over Tottenham] because they were fantastic. But this is a very well-drilled Brighton side in difficult conditions and a very young Arsenal side.

Mikel Arteta’s after match thoughts

Arteta also insisted his side’s performance on the south coast did not merit three points. ‘I think it was a point gained because I don’t think we deserved anything more than that,’ said Arteta. ‘We did deserve the point because we defended really well the last 15 or 20 metres of our pitch. ‘But in the end, we never felt in control of the game and we struggled to break their press and get a good sequence of passes and impose ourselves in the final third and they made it tough for us.
