Ian Wright: The two Arsenal players who should start on Monday
Former Arsenal star Ian Wright has called for Arsene Wenger to name a star-studded lineup for Monday night’s fixture in the FA Cup.
The Gunners are preparing for another much-anticipated clash, this time with non-league side Sutton United in the FA Cup.
Wednesday night’s 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich has put more pressure on Arsene Wenger’s side as they look to avoid another trophyless season.
And according to Wright, Wenger’s best decision would be to call upon his biggest stars Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil for the trip to Sutton.
“I just hope that Arsene Wenger plays some of his real stars – Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil.” the ex-Gunner said
“I’m pretty sure he will play a reasonably strong team, with international players, but it’s such a big night for Sutton that it could mean so much for them.
“They hire out the pitch to local clubs and kids teams – and if the youngsters can say, ‘I played on the same pitch as Alexis’, it would mean so much and inspire them.”
