Arsenal legend Wright: Wenger won't have plan for Tottenham's Bale

Arsenal legend Ian Wright doesn't expect Arsene Wenger to have a special plan for Tottenham star Gareth Bale today.

The Gunners go to Spurs needing a win to keep their top four hopes alive.

Wright said: "He won't say anything in the dressing room about Bale in particular. He's well aware of what the Welshman can do and the Arsenal boys know what to expect. He'll talk about Spurs as a whole unit and look at Lennon, Dembele, Parker and the set up as a whole.

"Arsene concentrates on his own team as he says and won't focus on Bale. They're going to need a team effort to stop him though. There's been talk about Aaron Ramsey man marking him but you need all of the lads to take responsibility with the incredible form that Bale is in."
