A win is a win and Arsenal did just enough to get one against Southampton on Saturday, but as per their fans were far from happy with goings on.
The Gunners toiled for large parts in coming from behind to claim a maximum points haul, and even Mesut Ozil conceded they were ‘lucky’ to get the victory.
New £50 million pair Shkodran Mustaf and Lucas Perez made their bows against the Saints, and each played a part in either Arsenal goal.
However, reception to Perez’s performance in particular was lukewarm at best with former Highbury hero Ian Wright seemingly unimpressed with the Spaniard.
Wright – forgetting his own limitations as a piss poor pundit – took stage on Match of the Day to question Perez’s suitability within the Arsenal team.
“Arsenal need a striker who would be on the shoulders of the last defender. I thought we would see someone more direct. It seemed to me that he’s a winger” the star of the ‘Chicken Tonight’ adverts mused.
Aside from Wrighty, a 62minute cameo was enough for a fair few Gunners to question whether Perez was indeed up for the job.
People writing off Lucas Perez already. ?
