Arsenal fans are excited over the imminent return of striker Alexandre Lacazette after he was pictured in training before the club’s encounter against Sheffield United.
Should Arsenal have signed Zaha over Pepe?
Lacazette was sidelined with an ankle injury after going off during the club’s 2-2 draw against rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
However, in his pre-match press conference, manager Unai Emery talked up the France international’s chances of playing against Chris Wilder’s side this evening (via The Express).
Despite his relatively short season this campaign, Lacazette has had a telling impact for the north London giants. He opened the scoring at home to Burnley before scoring the first goal in the side’s comeback against Spurs (via Transfermarkt).
A return from injury will be most welcome for the Gunners, who have relied on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for goals this campaign, with the forward scoring seven of the club’s 13 league goals.
Fans were thrilled at the return of the 16-cap France international as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
Glad he’s back…more work to be done.
