The Arsenal striker Lacazette will miss Manchester United visit on Saturday due to groin problem in which he sustained on Wednesday night game against Huddersfield Town.
Lacazette was taken off and replaced by Olivier Giroud during Wednesday’s night 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield Town at the Emirates stadium at half way.
After the game, the club manager, Arsene Wenger addressed the nature of his injury by giving the press the necessary updates by saying…
“Lacazette has a groin problem and he’ll be out for Saturday’s game. He might be out for a while,”
With this updates, it is uncertain the actual date of his coming back because issues relating to groin is not always that kind of injury one can give a 100% predictions.
Since the beginning of this season , Arsenal has been in a good form at their home side and with this news update, the club will have to struggle their way through the game to make sure they keep a good strong home defence.
It is very important to know that Lacazette has seven league goals since joining Arsenal at the beginning of the season after a €53-million summer move from Lyon that shattered Arsenal’s transfer record.
So without Lacazette who scored the Wednesday’s opening goal against Huddersfield Town, the manger, Arsene Wenger has several options on his finger tips to gamble with, this including moving Alexis Sanchez up top with Alex Iwobi and Mesut Ozil in support. He could also hand Giroud who bagged two goals against the Terriers or former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck, who since he left the Red Devils is always hungry to see them been defeated and that alone could win him the chances of starting the game or still can be substituted second half since his form this season is not that perfect but a bit manageable.
