Arteta hoping to see Lacazette pick up form soon

    Mikel Arteta has admired Alexandre Lacazette for his versatility while hinting that he could be back in the starting line-up against Burnley.

    A string of subpar performances prior to the lockdown saw Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette get dropped to the bench by Mikel Arteta.

    Lacazette has managed to find the back of the net seven times in the Premier League in 21 matches, and only in 15 of those he has played from the beginning.

    The presence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the rise to prominence of Gabriel Martinelli is also one of the reasons for the Frenchman being in and out of the team.

    21-year-old Eddie Nketiah has been preferred by Arteta as of late, but the Gunners boss was full of praise for Lacazette ahead of the Burnley clash suggesting that he has not yet given up on the club’s last year’s Player of the Season.

    “Alex is a player that I always liked because he’s the type of striker that can do a bit of everything,” Arteta said [via Metro].

    “It has been a difficult season for him. Not just for him, for other players too. But we’ve been trying to manage that.

    “I think in the last few weeks [before the lockdown] he looked much better, was a threat, and scored some important goals for us as well.”
