(Video) Arsenal legend insists “drastic change” needed for Gunners to win Champions League

Posted by

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has doubts over his old club’s ability to win the Champions League this season given their current form.

The Gunners remain unbeaten in their last 18 games in all competitions, as they have bounced back from the opening-weekend defeat to Liverpool and shown a new solidity about the side.

However, Wright is concerned about their recent performances, with Arsene Wenger’s side being held to draws against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

The 2-2 draw with PSG leaves Arsenal in second place in Group A, and it looks as though that is where they will finish which promises a tough draw in the last 16.

In turn, as seen in the video below courtesy of BT Sport, Wright isn’t convinced that they have what it takes to win the Champions League based on what he has seen in the last few weeks.

There certainly should be a concern at Arsenal over their dip in performances, as Wenger’s men don’t look anywhere near as fluid and convincing as they did as recently as a month ago.

While they do have a commendable spirit and desire to keep their unbeaten run going, they must start to click back into gear offensively sooner rather than later in order to turn these draws into wins and prove that they are genuine contenders for honours both at home and in Europe.

Injuries haven’t helped them either as Wenger will be desperate to get Hector Bellerin and Santi Cazorla back fit as soon as possible, with those two in particular noticeable absentees.
