Arsenal given simple decision over Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette contracts


He showed he has improved with his back to goal and now has the ability to drop deep – something Arteta wants from his striker. Nketiah came close to scoring on a number of occasions and perhaps should have put the game to bed.

But he showed exactly why he is now a level above Lacazette. According to Squawka, Nketiah had four shots on target at the London Stadium – the same number Lacazette has managed in his last nine Premier League matches combined.

There is no wonder Lacazette is scoring so few goals if he is not shooting. But Nketiah’s ability to run in behind creates a lot of his chances – something Lacazette has not got the pace to do.

Arsenal will sign a striker this summer and Nketiah may not be the answer to all their problems in that position. But they must do what they can to change his mind and convince him he will get enough game time at the club if he stays.
