‘He is walking’: Ian Wright unhappy with Arsenal 24-year-old against Manchester City

The way that Arsenal prepared for their Sunday Premier League title matchup at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City is a topic of much discussion.

Arsenal had the opportunity to take the lead in the Premier League standings. Show the world that they are deserving of a championship and defeat THE team in the league to make a bold statement.

Mikel Arteta chose to play instead in order to keep his team from losing and to ultimately earn a point.

As a result, neither team had many opportunities during the match, and even the slimmest of margins was closely watched.

Ian Wright specifically criticized Kai Havertz for his lack of movement as an Arsenal number nine during the match.

Manchester City vs. Kai Havertz

Wright remarked, “I see a lot of this with strikers, at the moment. It’s not even frustration with some of the runs.”

“Here, you look at Havertz. We still have the ball, so you can still get onside and then go for a run, even though he is walking. Looking at that, he ought to have moved back into position to make a run earlier.

With his quality and in a match like this, Odegaard needs to make a pass around the left side, onto his left foot, and take the defender off the ball so he can get a touch. I believe it’s just those kinds of moments. That is the margins and that is the difference.
