The recent form of Alexander Lacazette hasn’t been impressive and it would do Arteta good if he is rested for some time.
Lacazette need to take a step backward, at least that could make him step up his performance level.
Arsenal fighting for a Champions League or Europa League place may not be realized if some players who are not performing at their best are not dropped.
Obviously, no one knows what’s going wrong with Alexander Lacazette at the moment. Arsenal’s last few matches have ended on a disappointing note which include lots of draws and unexpected losses and he hasn’t stepped up.
Lacazette hasn’t scored for some time now which should necessitate his rest. He’s not clinical in front of goal isn’t helping the team.
Despite these, there are still more to Lacazette as an Arsenal player. Mikel Arteta’s first three matches, Laca stepped up but quickly saw a decline.
If there’s any way Arteta can build up his confidence and performance level, he should be rested and be made to fight for his place.
Arsenal’s last four Premier League matches all ended in draws. The only game the Gunners won was an FA Cup clash with AFC Bournemouth.
