Arsenal legend Ian Wright poses for a snap outside St James' Park with former Premier League referee Howard Webb
Ian Wright will be part of BT Sport’s punditry line up covering Arsenal’s game at Newcastle today, and has posted a photo alongside former referee Howard Webb.
Former Fifa official Webb, who took charge of the 2010 Champions League and World Cup finals, is also a member of the BT Sport team as he gives feedback on important refereeing decisions during the channel’s coverage of matches.
The 44-year-old was regularly accused of bias against Arsene Wenger’s side during his 11-year Premier League career, an opinion not lost on Wright who took the chance to pose for a photo.

Wright, who made over 600 career appearances and averaged a goal every other game, showed his prowess in front of goal is not mirrored in his social media skills, with a series of misspelt Twitter tags.
The 51-year-old scored 185 goals for Arsenal during a seven-season Highbury stay.
Arsenal played out a goalless draw with Liverpool last weekend.
