Wright picks out "magnificent" and "brilliant" Arsenal stars from West Ham draw

Ian Wright has identified the "magnificent" and "brilliant" Arsenal players from their weekend clash against West Ham.

The Gunners found themselves 3-0 down after just 30 minutes after a shocking start.

Goals from Jesse Lingard, Jarrod Bown and Tomas Soucek put Mikel Arteta's men in danger of an extremely embarrassing result.

But own goals from Soucek and Craig Dawson saw Arsenal get back in the game before Alexandre Lacazette grabbed the equaliser late on.

Despite their awful start, the Gunners were worth a point for the manner in which they fought back.

And two players that were a massive help have been praised by Arsenal legend Wright for their performances at the London Stadium on Sunday.

"In the first 35 minutes, Arsenal were nowhere near it and it was testament to West Ham that they did punish them," the former striker told Premier League Productions.

"But in the end, the character that they [Arsenal] showed was magnificent, Chambers, Martin Odegaard is somebody that they need to make sure they make that signing if they can. Because he really did come to the fore today.

"What you want to see from him [Odegaard] is a player that has got unbelievable potential and ability

"You want to see him in a game like that where he’s going to be in the meat and bones of the game where he’s got to pick the ball up and does what he does.
