hailed and following ’s 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, while he also slammed Blues defender Malo Gusto.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked on course for all three points after racing into a two-goal lead at Stamford Bridge but Arsenal scored two late goals to deny them.

Rice pulled one back on 77 minutes – – and Gusto was unable to stop Saka’s cross as he provided the assist for Leandro Trossard’s equaliser.

Gunners legend Wright, speaking on Premier League Productions after the match, said: ‘It was a brilliant technique [from Rice].

‘He had to make sure it was curling away form the goalkeeper and he had a split second to actually execute that.

‘That’s the kind of thing, for a team that’s fighting for something, that was the break they needed.

‘It’s a great cross from Saka [for the equaliser]. I think Gusto has got to have a word with himself.

‘They cannot let Saka come back inside. Gusto looks at him and leaves him.

‘That’s the two bits of quality Arsenal needed to show – Rice’s brilliant finish and Saka’s pin-point cross for Trossard. Those are the moments that gave us a point today.’

The result means that Arsenal are now second in the Premier League, level on points with leaders Manchester City.
