Arsenal dropped points for the second time in the 2023-24 Premier League campaign on Sunday after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium.
It is still early days but the Gunners are now four points behind Manchester City after six league games, and Ian Wright believes missing big chances could prove costly in the long run.
Gabriel Jesus had a chance to double his side’s lead in the first-half after an own goal from Spurs centre-back Cristian Romero had put Arsenal ahead 26 minutes into the game.
Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario played the ball out to James Maddison on the edge of the box six minutes later, but the 26-year-old Brazil international striker pounced, nicked the ball and had a clear sight of goal.
However, he failed to even hit the target and smashed the ball over.
The miss proved costly ten minutes later as Heung-Min Son drew the visitors level, and Wright thinks Arsenal may need an upgrade in the number 9 position to convert more chances.
