Arsenal legend Wright pleads with Arteta: Please sell Mustafi!

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Mikel Arteta's first business as manager should be to sell Shkodran Mustafi.

The Germany international put in another disappointing performance against Chelsea on Sunday.

"Mustafi was absolutely petrified of him [Tammy Abraham]," Wright said on Match of the Day 2, in reference to Chelsea's winning goal.

"You have got someone like Arteta coming in but there's nothing you can do to coach a defender of his experience now, those are the type of players he's got to be looking to get rid of."

He added: "When you look at the two games there's definite improvement in Arsenal.

"You just think what they could have done had they gone with the appointment after the Leicester game at the international break.

"It's one and two touch all the way and its really quick. Fantastic zip, the fans should be happy with what they're seeing at the moment but give Chelsea credit for what they've done."
