After an impressive start to the season, Alexandre Lacazette scored just one goal in his last 11 Premier League games and Arsene Wenger has explained why the striker's form has dipped.
Overall, Lacazette has only netted nine goals in 29 appearances for the North London outfit this campaign.
The France international is currently out for six weeks with injury, although he did find himself among the substitutes before the injury.
“He got a surprising swell of the knee after the game against Tottenham and needed surgery, very quick surgery, and he will be out for the next four or five weeks,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.
“It’s a massive blow for us, but we have to find a solution.
“Nobody could predict that, but football is as well to do with unpredicted things and it’s always a good opportunity to find someone who steps in and does well.”
