Arsenal fans beg Wenger to star Lacazette against CSKA

Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal with plenty of promise due to his scintillating displays in front of goal for Lyon.

The forward moved to the Emirates last summer with a history of more than 100 goals for the French outfit.

Unfortunately for the attacker, he has not yet replicated the form that earned him a move to the Premier League.

In fact, since securing the transfer, Lacazette has found the back of the net 10 times in 27 top-flight matches and has created three assists in that period.

The Frenchman has rarely finished a game, though, having completed 90 minutes just four times in his last 10 appearances for the Gunners.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the North London outfit from Borussia Dortmund in January, Lacazette’s game time has been limited even further.

In the Europa League, though, the Gabon international is ineligible having already featured for Dortmund in the second tiered European competition this season.

With that in mind, Arsenal fans have made it clear that they want to see Lacazette in the first XI against CSKA Moscow later this evening at the Emirates.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that the forward is fit for the encounter, but has not revealed whether he will be in the starting lineup.

One thing is for sure, though, Arsenal supporters desperately do not want Danny Welbeck to be given the nod.
