Arsenal Would Be Mid-Table Without Alexis Sanchez, Says Gunners Legend

Speaking on his BBC 5 Live 606 show, Wright said even with one of the signings of the summer, Arsenal will still struggle to qualify for the Champions League.

“If it wasn’t for Sanchez, where would they be right now?” said Wright. Sanchez has scored 12 goals in his first 19 games for the North London side so far this season following his £35 million move from Barcelona.

Yet despite Sanchez’s goals, the Gunners have made their worst start to a season in 32 years, and have won just four of their first 12 league games.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has come under even more pressure following his sides defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, with many of the Emirates crowd booing at the final whistle.

Asked if it was time for Wenger to move on from Arsenal, Wright said: “It’s very frustrating. It’s getting to that time now.”

Arsenal will want a quick turnaround of fortunes as they face Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night in a crucial Champions League tie.
