You deserved red card – Ian Wright tells Arsenal player after Tottenham draw

Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has admitted Eddie Nketiah should have seen red during the 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Nketiah was only shown a yellow card after he clattered into Spurs goalkeeper, Guglielmo Vicario.

“I think it was one where it is fortunate, simply because the ball is gone,” Wright told Match of the Day.

“He was totally committed. I don’t know if it was frustration, because of how the game was going for him.

“He had one shot on target today. I don’t know if it is frustration. When you look at the ball, he was very fortunate to stay on. He got away with one there.”

The Gunners went in front twice at the Emirates on Sunday, but Tottenham levelled each with two goals from Spurs star Son Heung-min.
