Lacazette’s goal record against Southampton and some stats you might like

Arsenal’s match against Southampton is a great game to bet on Alexandre Lacazette to return to goal-scoring form.

The Frenchman has been the club’s captain for most of this year after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the Emirates in the last transfer window.

Lacazette is one of the senior figures at the club and their most experienced striker, but he doesn’t have enough goals in him.

The Gunners have struggled to get him to score more goals, but he is mostly in the team now because of his fine hold up play.

However, that could all change when Arsenal faces Southampton at the weekend because he has a good record against the Saints.

The Premier League website reveals he has been involved in seven goals in his last six league appearances against them, scoring five and assisting two more. They are his favourite league opponents.

In another stat that boosts Arsenal’s chance of winning the game, they claim the Gunners have just one loss in their last twelve league matches against the Saints.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Because this is a must-win game for us, fans would be happy to learn of these stats because they point to yet another win for us.

After suffering back-to-back losses, the last thing we need now is yet another defeat and we must work hard to avoid that.

A win against them will keep us in the hunt for a top-four place, but another defeat puts us in a tough position.

  1. Sorry but Laca has been trash, and his measly 8 passes last match is embarrassing for a veteran and a captain.

    His linkup play has been non-existent the last 2 matches, and our captain has been MIA or invisible when the team needed him and some sort of leadership on the pitch.

    He deserves to be benched, not automatically placed in the starting lineup. Nketiah in his few minutes offered more than Laca his entire time on the pitch.

  2. I did t know Laca had a goalscoring record TBH .
    How we keep 2 CFs that are out of contact and have scored about 2 goals between them in their whole careers while given away a class forward to Barca because Arteta couldn’t get the best out of him should be a sackable offence alone .
    But hey as long as we get top 6 atleast his fan club will be happy

    1. Top 6 under Arteta is progress Dan..
      under anyone else it’s unacceptable. Some of our fanbase would rather we stick with a manager that’s tactically inept than improve with someone else. Although our defence is fixed apparently even though we’re on the way to conceding more than last season.

      1. Thing is Kev the fan club were talking about us catching up with Chelsea 3 weeks ago and how we was odds on to get it now the same fans are saying they would be happy with 6th ,atleast stick to o there guns rather than jump on the newest bandwagon .
        Yea regarding goals against I had a look we are no better off than in the last 10 years ,if the season ends as predicted

        1. West ham, Totts, Chelsea away plus United at home I think it’s safe to say we will certainly have another underwhelming defensive record come the end of the season. Haha yeah Dan well they will have a long list of excuses ready for Arteta, even if we finish 7th I guarantee you they will claim it’s progress since we finished 8th last year. Anything below 4th is unacceptable in my eyes.

    2. Do you really believe the stuff that you post or are you just a WUM ? To say they have scored about 2 goals between them in their whole career is truly laughable 😂

    1. Not sure why my post was taking down Pat ?
      Obviously you have a soft spot for Vidal Sassoon
      As he as already got one of you’re best posters in years in TRVL banned from his little childish pokes so I’ll leave it there.

      1. I’ve also had one deleted, but unlike you I’m not whingeing.

        As for TRVL, he got himself banned !

  3. Not a big fan of Lacazatte, but his poor form is simply the by product of Arteta’s system.
    Laca’s average position on a heat map is in defense, just north of the 18-yard box.

    This is what Artetaball is all about: all 10 players behind the ball; players discouraged from making forward runs into space – and so the team end up playing from side to side and backwards. Boring, slow and ugly football with very few outlet passes up front.

    During the worst days under Wegner, even Emery, our game was stylish, attractive and entertaining. What a contrast!

  4. LACA is way below the standard we need. We need him gone as soon as the season is over. Fir what remains of this season I’d play Nketiah, who at least has some speed and has been unlucky with some close efforts of late, unlike totally ineffective old man LACA.

  5. We need all the goals from all possible attackers. If we dont win against them or drop points, top 4 will be virtually impossible, we have got to win at all costs.
