Arsenal fans were launching a scathing attack on Alexandre Lacazette for his performance in the defeat at home to Olympiakos.
It seems as though supporters weren’t too happy with the £63m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, France international and with very good reason. The former Olympique Lyonnais forward wasn’t at his best last night as he had just two shots, with neither hitting the target, completed just one key pass and no dribbles (SofaScore). He was eventually taken off at half-time in extra-time as Mikel Arteta opted to bring on Gabriel Martinelli.
One fan called his performance ‘shocking’.
Arteta is going down the same road as Wenger post 2008. Playing the same dross game in game out.The defence is shit. Xhaka is a terrible player end of. What the fuck does Ozil do in any game?Lacazette has been shocking yet starts in front of Martinelli. Arteta wont drop the shit pic.twitter.com/l9MR9CgJBU

Lacazette has been in a run of poor form recently and has scored just two goals across his last 12 games across all competitions (via Transfermarkt). His dismal displays have seen him be replaced by academy graduate Eddie Nketiah, who has started each of the last two Premier League games. Fans have had enough of the 28-year-old as they took to Twitter to lambaste him. Let’s take a look at some tweets:
Somebody arrest Lacazette immediately

You’d think Lacazette would be working his ass off knowing his Premier League starting place is in jeopardy. Guys doing absolutely nothing on the pitch

Man I swear if Lacazette starts the next league game I’m going to lose my mind.
Arteta said he’d be ruthless, so how is he continuing to play Lacazette who hasn’t had a single good game under him?
Also get Bellerin out of the side for AMN.

My Nan is better than Lacazette

In the games where Lacazette has started we’ve struggled to score more than 1 goal. In the 3 he hasn’t under arteta we have 9. He needs to be X’d permanently from that starting line up. He is way too easy to defend against and doesn’t cause defenders enough problems.
