Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been speaking about Alexandre Lacazette today and has suggested a reason as to why he hasn’t been scoring recently.
The Frenchman started the season well but it hasn’t been great over the past couple of months.
The player has only scored 1 goal in his last 10 matches and it was another frustrating day against Tottenham last weekend.
The forward missed a golden chance to bring the side level in the dying seconds of the game but put his strike wide.
Following that game, the player suffered a knee injury and unexpectedly needed surgery very soon after the game.
The Frenchman is now facing between four and five weeks out which will certainly not help his mood.
Now, Arsene Wenger has suggested that his knee problem could be the reason behind his barren run.
‘He got a surprising swell of the knee after the game against Tottenham and needed surgery, very quick surgery, and he will be out for the next four or five weeks,’ Wenger told beIN Sports, as cited by the Mail.
‘It’s a massive blow for us, but we have to find a solution.’
‘Nobody could predict that, but football is as well to do with unpredicted things and it’s always a good opportunity to find someone who steps in and does well.
‘Lacazette is down, but I think he recently must’ve felt something in his knee, I don’t know. Maybe as well that’s an explanation why he was not scoring as many goals as he’s used to.’
