Many Arsenal fans were left furious at the display of Alexandre Lacazette in their away trip to Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.
The France international could not really impose himself on the game as he really struggled against Dean Smith’s stubborn defence.
Should Arsenal let Lacazette go?
He lost out on no fewer than 86% of his duels in the match and also failed to record a single shot on goal, dribble or cross, as he only managed to have a mere 30 touches of the ball in total, the fewest out of any outfield Gunners player to have started the clash (Sofascore).
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back in the squad now, Lacazette may be fearing for his starting place under Mikel Arteta if he continues to put in underwhelming performances like these.
Arsenal fan reaction to Lacazette display
These Gooners slammed the performance of the 29-year-old striker on Twitter, with one member of the Emirates Stadium faithful even going as far as to describe him as ‘anonymous’:
“What’s the point in Lacazette being on the pitch? What does he actually offer??”
“Lacazette looks sluggish”
“Is Lacazette in this game at all?”
“I am trying to make sense of where Lacazette is playing cos it’s like we don’t have a striker…”
“The Lacazette gas never sat well with me cause games like this he’s just anonymous. Where’s the complete playmaker forward gone?”
“Lacazette is not in this game”
