Ian Wright has hit back at a Chelsea supporter who mocked him for celebrating a draw like a last-minute winner after Arsenal managed to rescue a point at Stamford Bridge.

Cesar Azpilicueta appeared to have secured victory for the hosts as he prodded the ball past Bernd Leno from close range with six minutes remaining of Tuesday night’s thrilling Premier League clash.

But Hector Bellerin, who wore the captain’s armband for the Gunners, had other ideas and picked out the corner of Kepa Arrizabalaga’s net from the edge of the box to salvage a 2-2 draw at the death.

Earlier in the second half, Gabriel Martinelli further underlined his enormous potential with a solo wonder goal to cancel out Jorginho’s 28th-minute penalty.

Wright was delighted with the spirit Mikel Arteta’s ten-man side showed to come away from Stamford Bridge with a point – and the legendary ex-Arsenal striker mocked Azpilicueta as he celebrated Bellerin’s late equaliser.

The which showed Wright imitating Azpilicueta’s celebration was later uploaded to his Instagram page and, unsurprisingly, it did not go down too well with Chelsea fans.

‘That literally shows what a calibre of a team Arsenal are… celebrating a draw like it’s a last minute winner,’ one supporter replied.


Wright had no time for the ‘ridiculous’ comment, though, and told the Chelsea fan to ‘go and **** yourself’ as he felt he had every right to celebrate.

‘What a ridiculous comment! We know exactly where we are!’ Wright responded.

‘But you think any Arsenal fan wasn’t delighted with coming back to draw at Chelsea when people are constantly we have no fight or heart? Yes we are celebrating a draw.

‘And you can go and **** yourself.’

Shkodran Mustafi was largely at fault for Chelsea’s opening goal – and David Luiz’s sending off – in the first half and Wright believes the German’s calamitous display proves he’s just ‘not good enough’ for the club.

‘We saw his heartfelt message to fans, the problem is he’s not good enough,’ the former England international told Premier League Productions.

‘He’s had multiple chances at Arsenal and he continues to let them down. I’m not digging him out or anything. He is not good enough.

‘They are playing him because they’ve got no choice and that’s unfortunately why Arsenal can’t get rid of him.’

However, Wright with pleased with the spirit Arsenal showed to fight back and salvage a point in the dying moments of the London derby.

He added: ‘It gives you the confidence to know that you’re always in a game.

‘You go down to ten men and you’re organised enough to know you can’t just sit back and just soak everything up. We’re still gonna try to get forward like we saw Hector get forward and score the goal.

‘They’re confident in the fact they know exactly what they’re doing now which is something that, when you watched under Unai Emery, they looked all over the place and it’s a game I do not think we would have been anywhere near getting anything out of.

‘There are so many positives. All that needs to happen now is eradicate the little things, Lacazette… the silly mistakes like Mustafi’s, those kind of things.

‘Then all of a sudden, Arsenal come here and with ten men they could win that game but it takes time for those things to happen.’
