Alexandre Lacazette sends message to Man United fans about Anthony Martial
Alexandre Lacazette praises Anthony Martial after linking up with the striker on France duty
Alexandre Lacazette has praised Anthony Martial after the Arsenal and Manchester United pairs linked up for France this week.
The pair were both in impressive form for the French national team during France’s 2-2 draw with Germany on Tuesday evening in the friendly clash.
Martial set up Lacazette for the Arsenal striker’s opening goal in the game, and the Gunners forward netted another later on when he combined with Kylian Mbappe.
And when asked what his relationship is like with both Martial and Mbappe, Lacazette is quoted as saying by Metro: “Very good, as it is in training.
“We get along well, they are quality players, so it’s easy to get along with these kind of players.”
Lacazette will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates.
Martial, meanwhile, will be hoping to have done enough to show Jose Mourinho that he’s worthy of a starting spot when Manchester United take on Newcastle on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford.
Lacazette has made a strong start to life at Arsenal, scoring six goals in nine games in the Premier League since his move from Lyon back in July.
Martial has scored four goals and made two assists in 10 Premier League outings for the Red Devils so far this season.
