Ian Wright thinks Dani Ceballos should have started for Arsenal in their 1-0 loss to Sheffield United on Monday night.
The Blades had not won in the league at home since August 18 and had lost their last three top-flight outings in front of their own fans.
However, Lys Mousset’s first-half goal got the world’s oldest football stadium rocking and, along with some stoic and organised defending, it proved enough for a famous triumph.
It was only Arsenal‘s second loss of the season but their troubles on their travels continue – Emery‘s team have not won away in the league since the opening day – as the Gunners missed the chance to go third in the table.
“I think he’s got to come here and Ceballos has to play. He’s played the youngsters and I’m pleased to see them in there, with Saka,” Wright told Premier League Productions.
“But Saka, for an 18-year-old, if you’re leaving Ozil totally out of the squad, then we have to see more from him [Saka], we have to see more from Joe.
“Unfortunately, it was a game where it passed them both by and then it comes down to the manager and his choices.
“He’s made the change at half-time, with Ceballos, so you’re thinking to yourself: ‘Why didn’t you start him in the first place?’
“Start him. He’s someone that gets on the ball when they want to try and play out, Guendouzi’s got a lot of energy and get the boys playing.
“[Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang didn’t have anything to play off today because there wasn’t any creativity.”
