Some very welcome news for Arsenal fans to celebrate

Talisman Alexandre Lacazette will be back from injury sooner than thought

It is being reported that Alexandre Lacazette could be back in full training with the first-team next week.

The Frenchman has already been sidelined for five weeks. It was thought it would be a few weeks yet before we saw him back in action.

However, according to sources cited by ESPNFC, Lacazette has been working hard with the club to get back to full fitness. The 28-year-old has been wearing a protective boot to protect his right ankle and working closely with the clubs physios.

As things stand today, according to those sources, Lacazette is expected to join the first-team squad next week for normal training.

If all goes well we could see Laca back in the mix to face Sheffield United on October 21st. In all fairness, Lacazette was expected back in October but the thinking was it would be later in the month.

Lacazette came off after an hour against Tottenham and the seriousness of the injury became known. He has not been seen since and has been missed.

Considering the next eight Premier League games do not involve a top-six side this is perfect timing for Emery. It means he will have a fully fit squad at his disposal, probably for the first time in his tenure.

This is a great opportunity for Arsenal and Emery to lay down a marker and the manager could not be better prepared.

    Hopefully UE will select teams that can take us forward – they might or rather probably will not be the teams we (who know much better than UE, of course) would pick, but as long as they keep winning, who are we to complain.

    I’ll be happy when Lacazette comes back because it will be less mental pressure and physical pressure on Aubameyang. However, Martinelli has done exceptionally well so far in EL.

    But realistically we need both Aubameyang and Lacazette goals to secure CL entry next season.

    Anyway, good to know Lacazette is recovering well

    Can’t wait to have him back. We need all our players fit and firing.

    This will certainly be the time for Unai to show us if he can handle The Arsenal.

    With a fully fit squad, “easy fixtures” and second place beckoning, there should be a real buzz about the team and the fans.

    Looking forward to seeing Lacs back,the complete No 9 in my opinion.

    Let’s make the Emirates alive again and finally see youth and experience blitz our opponents with fast, attacking, flowing football – can’t wait to see it unfold.

        Dan kit, I am always the optimist my friend…especially after what raul has said about Ozil having a part to play in the future.

        It should be great to see Bellerin-Chambers-Holding–Tierney playing as a back four, that looks such a strong youthfull set of players to me.

        It just depends on what UE thinks and, at least we now have clear waters as to what is expected from him and I honestly hopes he succeeds.

        At least you can watch your local team this weekend, these awful international games drive me mad!!

    England lose in qualifying for the first time in 10 years… that time there were no Gunners playing for England was it? Or was Walcott one of them 😉
