PEREZ DESERVES MORE CHANCES: WENGER

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits Lucas Perez is “pushing on the door” and deserves more opportunities.

Given a rare start on Monday, Perez opened the scoring in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Sutton United in the FA Cup.

Wenger said the former Deportivo La Coruna forward, who has made just two Premier League starts, deserved more chances.

“Yes, he is pushing on the door but I have many strikers,” he said.

“I have [Olivier] Giroud, [Danny] Welbeck, [Theo] Walcott, Alexis [Sanchez] and Lucas.

“It is true that he deserves a go because he scores goals and is a good player.”
