Not impressive report: “Alexandre Lacazette will miss out a meeting with Jose Mourinho”

November 30, 2017 by   Filed under: Arsenal FC, Premier League

Alexandre Lacazette picked up a groin injury against Huddersfield Town and will miss out a meeting with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side.

The France international striker was handed a starting role in our midweek meeting with Huddersfield Town.

Lacazette scored the opening goal in that contest inside three minutes, but was replaced by Olivier Giroud at half-time.

Arsene Wenger confirmed after a 5-0 mauling victory over the Terriers that the former Lyon striker had picked up a knock which will keep him out of a home date with Jose Mourinho’s side.

The French coach told reporters: “Lacazette has a groin problem and he will be out certainly for Saturday’s game.
“He might be out for a while.”

Lacazette has been in top form for Arsenal this season, and the Frenchman’s effort against Huddersfield was the seventh of his debut season at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will, however, be forced to reshape the squad against Man United this Saturday.

Lacazette’s compatriot Olivier Giroud could be the man to get the nod in a central striking berth, with Giroud having stepped off the bench to bag a brace on Wednesday.

Danny Welbeck could also be deployed against his former side, while Alexis Sanchez could move into a central role should Wenger bring Alex Iwobi back into the starting XI.

This was reported by Goal.
