“He does do the business.” Ian Wright hails in-form Arsenal star

Ian Wright is impressed with Kai Havertz as the German starts to justify Mikel Arteta’s faith in him.

The manager ignored all criticisms and continued to field the former Chelsea player, and Havertz is now consistently delivering top performances for the Gunners.

Havertz has played a crucial role in Arsenal’s impressive run of form, notably scoring the winning goal in their recent victory against Brentford.

Wright acknowledges that if Arsenal go on to win the league, Havertz’s goal will be one of the most significant moments in his career, emphasising that he is a player who thrives in crucial moments.

He said on BBC’s Match of the Day:

“Whatever you say, he does turn up in the big games, he does do the business.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Havertz has been so important for us in the last few weeks, and we have to admit we were mostly wrong about the German at the start of his career at the Emirates.

We are pleased that he is now showing us why we need to trust the process, and hopefully, his contributions will help us to win the league.

Other Arsenal stars have also been fantastic in the last few weeks, and we hope they can all stay injury-free between now and the end of the season.

  1. ‘Whatever you say, he does turn up in the Big games, he does the business’

    Maybe the name ‘Big German’ is fitting after all.

    He really seems to come alive in Big moments, strangely the kid has been doing so from a tender age.

    It would be interesting to know what Wrighty thinks about his price tag, would £5mil more be pushing the envelope?

    All of a sudden the gaffer looks likes a genius again, its no wonder a certain fan happen to think the gaffer is some old magician.

  2. Wrightyly said, the gaffer is some old magician. It’s his idea, his players and his choice. Each time he decision has been doubted, he has equally been justified. Auba, lacca, ozil, ramsdale, pepe, I can go on to mention but a few. That said.

    My hope is that the gaffer will be like the Wengers and the clopps in the development and integration of young and raw talents in the nearest future.

    1. Oh yes Kai Havertz has improved but that was because of criticism.Nice job and credits to Dec Rice+ Benjamin.

    2. It’s likely that once Arsenal achieves a well-rounded team and secures a trophy or two, Arteta will begin to integrate academy players more effectively. This pattern echoes similar experiences with Klopp, Wenger, and Guardiola, where the utilization of youth talents increased once the pressure to deliver trophies eased. It might take some time for Arteta to fully embrace the academy players, possibly not until after securing a Premier League win.

  3. Agreed Havertz has really improved over the past few weeks but let us remember that he has done so after getting opportunities to start by Arteta inspite of his initial failures. I am very happy for Havertz as it adds to the cause of the team but I hope Arteta gives the same number of opportunities to ESR, our very talented Academy product.
