I am not going to be too hard on the new Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette, as he has only just joined the club and has not had too much time with his new teammates and we know these things can take time. Also we must remember that this is pre-season and when Arsene Wenger signed him from Lyon most people thought it was too soon for him even to go on tour.
Having said that, the clock is ticking and I am sure that the boss wants to be able to start his new striker when our Premier League season kicks off at home to Leicester City on Friday August 11th, so how does Wenger get his fellow countryman doing what he did to make him our record signing?
I would say that Lacazette showed some sharpness in the other games and that was promising. He took his debut goal well and was only denied a second by a great save from the Bayern Munich keeper. He has also showed some good link up with Ozil, Welbeck and Iwobi so that needs to be encouraged and worked on.
I believe the key is for him to be part of a slick side with passing and movement and unfortunately Arsenal were not that against Chelsea. The Frenchman also looked off the pace but that is just a fitness thing and there are three more weeks for him to sharpen up.
get Ozil and pulling the strings and Arsenal flowing and then we might start to see the real deal, don’t you think?
