After France international striker Alexandre Lacazette found the back of the net in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, the Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has challenged the French man to repeat the feat away from Emirate Stadium.
The club-record signing has been as good as any striker in the Premier league at home, netting four goals in just three matches. On the flip side, he is yet to grab a goal after the same number of matches on the road.
As a result, the French tactician has challenged the French international to repeat such feat away from home, as reported by the Daily Star.
Alexander Lacazette has been unlucky away from home so far. Against Stoke City, his goal was adjudged offside – some Arsenal fans still believe the decision to rule the goal offside was incorrect – and against Merseyside giant Liverpool the striker had few minutes, with Arsenal already way out of the match. Playing Stoke City, Liverpool and Premier League Champions Chelsea in your first three away matches is a baptism of fire for you.
However, even if the striker has not managed to score a goal so far, the former Lyon goal king’s link up play has always been brilliant, as Arsene Wenger mentions. Plus the goals coming freely at home.
