Arsenal legend Wright: Wenger paying for not buying keeper

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Arsene Wenger is to blame for their defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

In his column for The Sun, Wright wrote: "You cannot blame Manuel Almunia for Arsenal's shock defeat to West Brom.

"Just like you will not be able to point the finger at his understudy Lukasz Fabianski if he costs the Gunners once more in Belgrade tonight.

"That's because, ultimately, there is one man who must carry the can for the current goalkeeping crisis at my old club.

"And that is Arsene Wenger.

"The Arsenal boss knows better than anybody the standard of his keepers. He has had numerous chances to strengthen that department in the last couple of seasons but refused to take them.

"Now his unwillingness to invest in a world-class stopper has come back to bite him and his team's bid for much-needed silverware.

"Especially on Saturday."
