"Very disappointing": Ian Wright criticises Arsenal duo after Crystal Palace draw

Ian Wright has criticised Arsenal duo Ben White and Nicolas Pepe following the club's Premier League draw with Crystal Palace. The two clubs shared points at the Emirates Stadium, with the second-half substitute Alexandre Lacazette securing a draw for his side. Wright was not impressed by Arsenal's result and has shared his honest thoughts, particularly on White and Pepe.
"I think it’s a little bit of a worry for Arsenal because when you look at both goals, we’re not getting defenders to go and engage," the ex-Gunners man told Premier League Productions. "He’s [White] got to get closer to him [Edouard] and he doesn’t do it. They’ve done brilliantly to score the goal. "I think he’s got to get close to him… at no stage does Ben White close that gap. People can say what they want, maybe the goalkeeper or whatever… at no stage does that gap get smaller so why wouldn’t you shoot?"
He added:
"I think Palace totally capitalised, they did their homework on Arsenal, they closed down the right people and shut down the left side. Kieran Tierney didn’t do anything. "Pepe was again and once they scored, Arsenal did not take it to Palace. "We’ve seen Palace come back a couple of times and there’s no way they were going to rest on their laurels. They were going to go for Arsenal and they did and they were unfortunate not to win today."
