Ian Wright believes Arsenal are still capable of beating any Premier League team on their day.

The Gunners have endured a mixed season in the Premier League so far following 25 points from their opening 13 games in the 2017-18 season.

Arsenal have a miserable record on the road in the Premier League this term following losses to Stoke City, Liverpool, Watford and Manchester City.

The Gunners, who missed out on a Champions League spot last term, were 2-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby at The Emirates last weekend.

Mesut Ozil teed up his compatriot Shkodran Mustafi to break the deadlock before Alexis Sanchez sealed three points with a finish high into the roof of the net.

Arsenal followed up their derby win with a 1-0 win at Burnley thanks to Sanchez’s last-gasp winner from the penalty spot at Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 and haven’t come close to challenging for the top-flight crown.

Former Arsenal striker Wright still believes Wenger’s men are capable of brilliant performance to unlock any Premier League defence.

“Arsenal can take anyone apart on their day irrespective of the form their in,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“The problem is it doesn’t happen often enough. We need consistency.”
