Alexandre Lacazette is sure that his partnership with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will only improve
The partnership between Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil is one that is growing with every game that goes by. The Arsenal strikeforce could blossom into the most fearsome in the Premier League, and Lacazette believes that they will only get better as time goes by.
Arsenal were forced to stomach a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United last Saturday as Jose Mourinho’s side left the Emirates with all three points. The game itself was notable for being a performance in which the Gunners deserved all three points, but they were thwarted by an inspired David de Gea, who made a string of fine saves on the night.
The defeat has seen Arsene Wenger’s men fall from their top four place, meaning they are once again chasing a Champions League spot. It means that their game against Southampton is an incredibly important one, with the Gunners renowned for their ability to make one defeat snowball into a run of losses.
Three players that will be very important to Arsenal in the season to come are Lacazette, Sanchez and Ozil, who have all been in fine form recently. Indeed, Lacaztte has admitted that his partnership with the other two will only grow stronger with time.
He told Arsenal Player: “The coach puts all three of us together or puts us into pairs. Then, I’m the one who has to get to know them more, rather than them as they’ve been playing together for quite a few years. ‘It takes time to adapt. It will take days, weeks, maybe months, I don’t know. But, it’s not a problem, but I know that in time we’ll get on even better”.
If the three do continue to improve, then they will only help the Gunners towards their goal of retaking a Champions League spot that has for so long been in their grasp.
