After missing out on the England squad, the defender bounced back with a star display at Emirates Stadium to leave Gunners legend Wright impressed.
“When you look at the way Arsenal have improved – more shots, higher turnovers, possession won in the final third… the one player that epitomised that for for me today was Ben White," he told Match of the Day.
“He was magnificent. Tottenham gave him a lot of space.
"That was a fantastic performance – the most touches anyone had today was Ben White. So pleased for him."
