Arsenal legend Ian Wright has told manager Unai Emery that he must start four players when the Gunners face city rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the derby on Sunday.

Unai Emery and his players will host Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium in what’s the first North London Derby (NLD) of the season.

Ahead of the game, former Arsenal striker Ian Wright advised Unai Emery to start four players namely Alexandre Lacazette, Nicholas Pepe, Lucas Torreira and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Ian Wright made this known via his official YouTube channel as he said that Arsenal were a better team with those four players on the pitch at once during the league defeat at the hands of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Arsenal suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend on the back of the 3-1 loss to Liverpool.

The defeat ended their perfect start to the season having won the first two league games of the season until that game.

Ian Wright said that Arsenal created more chances while those players were on the pitch against Liverpool.

Nicholas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started the game and also had chances to score for Arsenal in the first half of that Liverpool game, while Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench to make a positive impact for the Gunners.

Lucas Torreira scored the consolation goal for the Gunners.
