Arsenal legend Wright raps Wenger: Why mess Cech around?

Arsenal legend Ian Wright slammed Arsene Wenger's team selection for their draw at Champions League opponents PSG.

Wright blasted the decision to rest goalkeeper Petr Cech for the Champions League clash.

Speaking on BT Sport, Wright said: “I didn't like it the last time… I like the No1 to be in for these big games.

“I could understand if it was the League Cup, with all due respect, but it's the Champions League and Petr Cech is the No1 goalkeeper."

Wright, aged 52, added: "I know that Ospina needs to get games, but for me, Ospina knows that he is a No2.

“And I don't think that Ospina is going to cause too many problems for Arsene Wenger if he is not playing in the first game of the Champions League away to PSG, where let's face it, Arsenal need to get a result to build confidence.

“He's shown a lot of faith in Ospina again. He did it against Olympiakos last season and it didn't work out."
