Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Arsene Wenger did not make the FA Cup a priority.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "My former manager approaches tonight’s clash with Bayern Munich under unbelievable pressure and I hope the Arsenal players he has shown such faith in are aware of this.

"It’s time they repaid Wenger with a massive performance.

"But Wenger has once again made life incredibly difficult for himself by not fielding his strongest team against Blackburn in the FA Cup on Saturday, with the result an embarrassing defeat. Another one.

"Wenger made a big mistake by not making the FA Cup his top priority.

"This means the Champions League is Wenger’s final chance of winning a first trophy in eight years."
