Video – Watch Lacazette discuss having Arsenal’s kids around…

Alexandre Lacazette was only on the pitch for 25 minutes last night but it was enough for him to grab the points for Arsenal against Brighton, after an excellent run down the wing by Saka.

The 29 year-old is used to being in a front line with Willian and Aubameyang, and he admitted that having Saka, Martinelli and Smith-Rowe around him makes him feel old!

Lacazette may feel old, but there is no need to send him to the knackers yard just yet!

    For those fans who were calling for Auba to replace Laca through the middle I would hope that they would have the courtesy to acknowledge the fact that our Captain is just not cut out for that role.If Auba plays it should be on the left ,and if his poor form continues, he should not be guaranteed his game, but treated like any other member of the first team pool.The reintroduction of Martinelli and the emergence of ESR has brought real energy to the team and has provided the Manager with strength in depth to the extent that he no longer feels obliged to play the likes of Pepe, nor perhaps, Luis and Willian.Long may this situation continue.

      I was shocked to see lacca on the bench and auba starting in his place after Chelsea. It doesn’t send out the right message, auba is out of form and lacca played well against Chelsea to be dropped. I think auba at least should have been sub and come on. Arteta should understand that players lose respect by not being treated fairly.

      Hear hear to all that Grandad. No one, no matter who he is or his previous standing in football, should ever be GUARANTEDD a game.
      Simply put, Auba has been on holiday this whole season and does not deserve to play. I would leave him on the bench and while we are looking more hungry with him out of the start eleven, I would leave him there until he gets the message that NO player can ever be a passenger.

      I expect that to happen (him being left out) versus WBA.

    A point well made Reggie.

      Its not that i favour one over the other Grandad but for the sake of the team, form should dictate and players should and could respect that. Favouritism should not be used but winning your place when given the chance, should be.
