Ian Wright pokes fun at Gary Neville after his Arsenal outburst

‘It’s not about fans, it’s about no more Super Sunday at Sky!’: Ian Wright pokes fun at Gary Neville for saying ‘all teams should play on’ after Arsenal’s north London Derby with Tottenham is postponed by the Premier League

  • Arsenal’s North London derby with Tottenham has been postponed 
  • The Gunners claimed they do not have enough players to fulfill Sunday’s fixture
  • Gary Neville feels sides should put together a team and stop postponing games
  • Ian Wright thinks Neville is angry as the postponement would ruin Super Sunday 

Ian Wright has mocked his former England teammate Gary Neville on social media, claiming that the pundit only wants the north London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal to go ahead so that it does not ruin Super Sunday on Sky Sports.

The Gunners put in a request to the Premier League for the game to be postponed due to the club not having enough senior players to put together a matchday squad, and the top flight confirmed the fixture was pushed back on Saturday. 

Mikel Arteta currently has four players away at the Africa Cup of Nations, while injuries and Granit Xhaka’s suspension has left him with limited resources.

However, it is unclear as to how many players have tested positive for Covid-19, and that has angered Tottenham – who wanted the game to be played as planned.

Writing on Twitter last night prior to Brighton’s home match with Crystal Palace, Gary Neville insisted that all teams should be made to play their games rather than rearranging fixtures, and he took to Twitter on Saturday morning to reiterate that his view was not a dig at Arsenal.

He wrote: ‘I repeat this is not about Arsenal but all teams should be made to play from now on in the PL and EFL. Also why has the decision been delayed until today when the request was last night at 6.30pm. Fans will be setting off from all over the place and will be in limbo!’

Wright was quick to respond, and he had other ideas about the reasons behind Neville’s outburst.

‘”FROM NOW ON” It’s not about Arsenal or the fans. It’s about no more Super Sunday on Sky!’ he replied.

The derby has become the 21st Premier League fixture to have been postponed due to Covid-19 this season.
