The fact that the Arsenal and France international centre forward Alexandre Lacazette has recovered from his knee problem and is fit enough to start the Europa League game against CSKA Moscow tonight is fantastic news, but it will only help us to beat the Russian club if the creative players in the Arsenal team give the striker plenty of ammunition.
Lacazette is not like Alexis Sanchez who could conjure up goals out of nothing, but he is a very good finisher and should be feeling confident after getting back on the score sheet in his first game back from injury. Somentimes I feel the likes of Ozil tend to overplay and look for the perfect goal, while I think that they should be more intent on getting the ball to the Frenchman and giving him chances to do his thing.
A few misses do not matter as I feel that Lacca will score given enough opportunities, but if the Gunners insist on trying to walk the ball in then we could struggle against what is likely to be a determined and organised defence. Of course there are goal threats from other Arsenal players like Ramsey, Ozil and Mkhitaryan, but do you agree that we need to make sure that our main striker is the one given the most chances to find the back of the net tonight?
