The former player feels Arsenal has to sit deep and adopt a counter-attacking approach, rather than attempt to press high and outplay their opponents like they did against Aston Villa.
Arteta's side defeated Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium.
“That is the consistency and the kind of tempo that Arsenal needs to have in all games”, Wright told Premier League Productions.
“They are going to come up against teams who are going to cause them problems, but this kind of energy will cause teams a lot of problems.
“The thing that they are going to need to do against the better teams is play a counter-attacking game.
“They have got to try and let them come on, see if you can pinch the ball off of those teams and let that team know we are going to counter-attack you and be clinical doing it.
“I hope they have got the bravery to do it, because that’s the only way they are going to beat those top teams because they are not going to outplay them.
“Those teams will outplay Arsenal, it’s going to have been from a counter-attacking perspective".
