Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has come out to say that Gabriel Jesus is undroppable for the team. He recently revealed this ahead of their clash against Tottenham Hotspur, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, if he was Eddie Nketiah, he would try as much as possible to take whatever chance he is given in the first team because Gabriel Jesus would be undroppable in the coming weeks.
Wright added that the Brazilian’s work rate, finishing and strength are everything Arteta wants upfront.
His words, “If I’m Eddie (Nketiah) and I’m in Eddie’s shoes. I make sure that when I’m on there whatever half chance I get I take it and I’m ruthless with it.”
“Because if this guy is fit, he must play. He brings it to another place. I’m not saying this as a knock to Eddie, but he has to do something like that so people aren’t so worried when Jesus isn’t around Jesus is an entity on his own with the way he’s playing.”
“His work rate, his finishing, everything he does: that is his main strength. Eddie is taking chances. He could’ve had a couple more at the start of the season to put him into that, and he has to do that, because if Jesus continues like he is there is no conversation, he’s so good.”

On 20 December 2019, Arsenal appointed former club captain Mikel Arteta as the new head coach. Arsenal finished the league season in eighth, their lowest finish since 1994–95, but beat Chelsea 2–1 to earn a record-extending 14th FA Cup win. After the season, Arteta’s title was changed from head coach to manager.
