Son Heung-min, a star for Spurs, scored twice to keep the Gunners from defeating the Emirates on Sunday, 2-2.

Nketiah, however, made a nasty challenge on Tottenham goalkeeper Vicario, and Mikel Arteta’s team may have been fortunate to have 11 players on the field at the time.

Wright said on Match of the Day, “I think it was one where it is fortunate, simply because the ball is gone.”.

He gave it everything.

Because of how the game was going for him, I’m not sure if it was frustration.

“Only one of his shots today connected.”. I’m not sure if it’s irritation.

He was extremely fortunate to remain on, when you look at the ball.

There, he got away with one.’.

Additionally, Wright drew attention to Arsenal’s goal-scoring issues and urged his former team to up their game if they want to win the Premier League trophy.

 

Wright continued, “If you’re going to try to catch Man City, you’ve got to take the opportunities you’re creating.”.

We’re talking about margins, and a score of 2-0 changes the nature of the contest.

We would have seen a different type of Spurs.’.

Wednesday’s Carabao Cup matchup against Brentford will mark Arsenal’s return to competition.

Aaron Ramsdale is urged by Jamie Carragher to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window.

According to Jamie Carragher, Aaron Ramsdale won’t try to force his way back into the starting XI.

After David Raya, a fellow goalkeeper, took Aaron Ramsdale’s place in the starting lineup, Jamie Carragher urged Ramsdale to leave Arsenal in January.

Arsenal news, analysis, and exclusives.

Ramsdale was a vital cog in Arsenal’s run for the Premier League championship last season, but he has since been benched for the team’s last three contests.

Mikel Arteta chose to start Raya, a summer signing from Spain, instead, and Raya has already recorded two shutouts.

Ramsdale, in the opinion of Carragher, should now consider leaving the Emirates when the transfer window reopens this winter.

If he was given the chance to play for a respectable club and Arsenal were satisfied with that, Carragher predicted that the player would leave in January.

At Arsenal, he hasn’t performed poorly.

He has performed much better than many people anticipated.

I believe Arsenal will take a look and consider how much they could get for him.

It might be something that takes place in January.

When it comes to elite goalkeepers, a club never has two at the same level.

The majority of the time, this occurs because you are unable to choose between them because they are both inadequate.

I think Arteta is awesome for doing it.

I understand that it is brutal. But to be completely honest, I don’t see Ramsdale rejoining the team.

“Raya is the No. 1”.

Ramsdale and Number 1 will have to move on.

It might happen if he can leave in January and Arsenal can get a good price.’.

After Ramsdale’s reaction to Raya’s crucial save during Sunday’s north London derby went viral, Carragher further implied that Ramsdale was acting.

Carragher continued, “You know when someone loses the Oscar and they’re clapping and smiling for the other person?”.

“When I saw that, I was laughing.”.

He’ll be devastated to the core.’.
