Arsenal legend Wright: Fans shouldn't compare Aubameyang game to Alexis

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says fans shouldn't compare Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Alexis Sanchez.

Wright has urged fans of the north London outfit to be patient with the £65m stirker.

Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It's been mentioned about Aubameyang not having enough touches in matches.

“He can get away with that.

“If he stays right at the top there and let him get on with it, then why do you want touches when you've got [Mesut] Ozil, Mkhitaryan and all those players?

“You can stay on the edge and not touch it.

“If Arsenal can play to his strengths, he's that kind of player who could have four touches and score four goals."
