Teammate says Arsenal aren’t getting enough out of Lacazette

Arsenal are not getting enough out of club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette, according to Petr Cech.

Lacazette has scored eight goals and registered one assist in 18 Premier League games this season.

The striker has started all but three games this season, Arsene Wenger choosing to rotate in games against Liverpool and Manchester City.

He was also rested against West Ham, meaning that the Gunners have not won when he has not started this campaign.

Cech feels Arsenal must adjust to the player instead of the other way around.

“Alex is a very intelligent player,” Cech told Standard Sport. “The way he plays, obviously, he has adapted quickly to the way we play. I think we, as a team, we need to get more out of him because sometimes he makes a very good movement but the ball does not arrive every time at the right moment.

“I think it’s a matter of time [before we see his best]. But for a player who has just come to the Premier League, he’s had a pretty good run. He has immense quality in front of goal. If you see his ratio from how many shots he actually takes, it’s just a matter of time before more goals will come.”
