Ian Wright: Arsenal lack leaders in their squad, Arsene Wenger needs accountability

The former Arsenal striker believes Arsene Wenger's side lack accountability

Ian Wright believes there is a lack of accountability in the Arsenal squad.

The Gunners lost 2-1 to title rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend after goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling cancelled out Theo Walcott’s first-half opener.

Arsenal have now lost back-to-back Premier League games following a 2-1 loss to Everton at Goodison Park – a result which ended their 14-game unbeaten run in the English top flight.

The north London side are in fourth place and nine points behind leaders Chelsea after 17 games to leave their title bid in doubt despite being talked up as potential contenders for the Premier League crown.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has provided an insight into Arsene Wenger’s dressing room ahead of the visit of West Bromwich Albion at The Emirates on Boxing Day.

“When you’ve been in the dressing room with Arsene Wenger, he isn’t a manager that raises his voice,” Wright told BBC’s 606 podcast.

“Tony Adams, Dixon, Bould and all the guys if something was going wrong, Wenger doesn’t speak for 10 minutes. He lets you sort it out. Adams will literally be in your face snarling. I don’t think it happens at Arsenal and I don’t think it has happened since those players left. There is no accountability.”

Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season and 10 points adrift of champions Leicester City.
