Lacazette v Giroud
With Arsenal reportedly preparing a bid for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, Sky Sports produced a graphic comparison between the pair of French strikers today.
And their stats are remarkably similar.
While Giroud played 9 games more than Lacazette, he scored just one more goal than the Lyon man, but Giroud does have a marginally better minutes per goal ratio.
Lacazette v Walcott
As the Sky presenter correctly points out, the Lacazette-Giroud comparison is far from a perfect one, as they are different types of players.
Sky then show a comparison between the Lyon man and Walcott, and this time Lacazette comes out comfortably on top.
But then, who wouldn’t against Walcott?
