Charlie Nicholas has urged Unai Emery to drop ‘shocking’ Matteo Guendouzi ahead of Saturday’s vital clash against Leicester City.

The 20-year-old impressed during the early stages of the season, particularly with a man-of-the-match performance against Tottenham in the north London derby and was rewarded with his first call-up to the senior France side last month.

Guendouzi has found the going tougher in recent weeks, however, with Emery constantly changing his midfield combinations.

Nicholas, however, believes the former Lorient star has avoided criticism due to the Granit Xhaka controversy and believes, like the Switzerland international, he needs to be taken out of the firing line.

‘Kieran Tierney needs to work on his final ball and this is important to get the service into the frontmen. Matteo Guendouzi is having a shocker and he is getting away with it due to Xhaka – he needs to be taken out of the team. I would rather Unai Emery go with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Lucas Torreira, he told Sky Sports.
