Tony Adams has told Arsenal that they cannot win the Premier League title without their top finisher, Gabriel Jesus.
Jesus has been injured since after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and will remain sidelined for at least two months.
The former Gunners star also wants Arsenal to drop Oleksandr Zinchencko on the bench for their game against Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Title rivals Arsenal and Man City meet for the first time in the Premier League this season.
Adams said: “Striker Eddie Nketiah has done brilliantly to come in and score some goals. It’s the same now because Arsenal won’t win the title without their main man up front.”
He further advised the Gunners on the best way to win their clash with Man City.
“When they beat Liverpool earlier this season, Arteta played Takehiro Tomiyasu at left-back and it was a genius move because he just sat on Mo Salah and completely cut out that threat.
“So tomorrow I will play Tomi at left–back instead of Oleksandr Zinchenko to take care of Riyad Mahrez,” he said.
