Ian Wright comments on Arsenal’s last-16 chances, says he is jealous

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says that he is jealous of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea’s Champions League results this week.

Ian Wright admitted on the UEFA Champions League Highlights show on BT Sport Europe on Wednesday evening that he is not sure if Arsenal will qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League this season.

The Gunners’ chances of making it out of their group are slim after they suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich away from home in Germany on Wednesday evening.

Arsenal are at the foot of Group F at the moment with just three points from four matches, six points behind Bayern and Olympiakos, who are first and second respectively.

Former Arsenal striker Wright does not appear to be too hopeful of Arsene Wenger’s side’s chances of finishing in the top two in the group.

The former England international has also admitted that he is jealous of the results of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea in the Champions League this week.

“You would do, yeah (expect Bayern to beat Olympiakos), and then it’s up to Arsenal to go and beat Olympiakos in Greece - which they have not done - by at least two goals," said Wright on the UEFA Champions League Highlights show on BT Sport Europe on Wednesday evening.

"You don’t know which Arsenal you are going to get. We might get the Arsenal at Bayern Munich or we might get the Arsenal at the Emirates. You don’t know."

“I just feel a bit jealous of City, United and Chelsea," he added. "I feel a bit jealous.”

United, City and Chelsea all won their respective group games over the past two days.

The Red Devils defeated CSKA Moscow 1-0 at Old Trafford in Group B, City got the better of Sevilla 3-1 away from home in Seville in Group D, and Chelsea edged past Dynamo Kiev 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in Group G.

While the Citizens have already booked their place in the last 16, United are at the top of Group B and Chelsea are second in Group G.
