#PremierLeagueStories – #IanWright hails Arsenal as ‘magnificent’ after resounding win over Chelsea #AFC

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has delivered his verdict on his former club’s performance in their win over Chelsea on Boxing Day.
The Gunners pulled off a surprise 3-1 home win over their London rivals thanks to goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka, ending a run of seven straight Premier League games without a win.
The win was one Mikel Arteta desperately needed with pressure mounting over his future following a hugely disappointing start to the season which has left the Gunners in 15th, even after that win over the Blues.
Nevertheless, the performance was one to be commended and a clear step in the right direction, something Wright agrees with, describing his former club’s efforts as ‘magnificent’.

“They were magnificent,” he told Optus Sport.
“You would have struggled to find Arsenal fans who would have been confident going into this game. The changes, the intensity, everything we said they didn’t have, was evident.
“They rode their luck a bit but I think they deserved the luck they got because of the way they played – with a lot more intensity and forward progression and in the end, we got the result and I’m delighted.”
The win will take some weight from Arteta’s shoulders, but there is still plenty of work to do and the Spaniard must continue to turn results around.

The Gunners head to Brighton on Tuesday as they look to continue their resurgence, and they will have the chance to move out of 15th place with a win.
They will also have the chance to put more distance between themselves and the drop zone, currently just six points ahead of Fulham, who occupy the final relegation spot.
