Ian Wright identifies ‘difference-maker’ in Arsenal squad


Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has identified midfielder Declan Rice as the ‘difference-maker’ in Mikel Arteta’s side.

Wright described the England international as an unbelievable player for the Gunners so far this season.

He spoke after Rice led Arsenal to beat Bournemouth 3-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

“He [Rice] is the difference [maker] for us, in respect of being able to play any of those positions in the midfield,” Wright said on Match of the Day.

“He will find himself in any situation and he will be able to deal with this. He was all over the place… What Arsenal are doing is a lot down to this man.

“He has been unbelievable for Arsenal this season.”

Rice joined Arsenal from West Ham United for £100 million plus add-ons last summer.
