Ian Wright is apprehensive over ‘tough’ Man Utd trip following Arsenal defeat

Arsenal hero Ian Wright is feeling worried about their upcoming trip to Old Trafford.

Mikel Arteta and his side will travel to face Manchester United in the Premier League next weekend having been beaten 1-0 at home by Brendan Rodgers’ inspired Leicester City.

Despite creating plenty of chances in the opening stages, Arsenal were undone by Jamie Vardy’s late winner following his introduction from the bench just after the break.

That has left Wright worried about the quality United have, and in particular Marcus Rashford.

“You look at Manchester United as well who are another team that will want to play on the break,” Wright told Premier League productions after the disappointing defeat.

“You’re going to need to be able to pass through them, be able to break them down. Manchester United will do the same thing [as Leicester] and they’ve got even better players going forward, more than just Vardy.

“It’s a tough one, we knew Leicester were going to be tough and we know Manchester United are going to be tough.

“Arsenal are going to have to dig in and find a way of getting results without scoring the perfect goal.”

Before adding: “With the counter-attacking, you look at Arsenal and you can see what happened with Vardy there tonight. Rashford could cause us problems.”

Arteta was left rather frustrated after the defeat, having dominated in the opening stages.

In his interview with BBC Sport, he said: "The game the way it went, I felt we had total control in the first half and restricted them to nothing.

“We were winning every ball, created a few chances and scored a goal I don't know how it got disallowed. They defended deeper in the second half, waiting for the mistake and in one moment they did it,

"Against this block, against well-organised teams, when you open them up you have to put the ball in the back of the net.

“They were similar against Manchester City, they scored with two set-pieces and credit to them for what they have done but our players responded and I feel sorry for them."
