legend gives his thoughts on the London Derby on Saturday, suggesting that Arsenal should start Elneny and Xhaka instead of Coquelin and Cazorla.

The Gunners host Chelsea in the London Derby Saturday morning. Wright explained through an interview with Arsenal TV that he wishes to see Elneny start against the Blues.

“I want to see Xhaka playing, and I want to see Elneny playing. I know (Francis) Coquelin is good, and he’s done well for us. He’s filled in a gap. Same with Santi (Cazorla), but they’re not playing positions that, for me, we haven’t got better players that can play there now,” the Arsenal legend explained.

Wright continued, “I’d like to see Xhaka and Elneny start…We need to do something different. Chelsea has seen nothing different from us. If Xhaka is playing and Elneny is playing, they aren’t going to know what to expect, really.”
