Jamie Redknapp uses Alvaro Morata to make point about Arsenal star
Jamie Redknapp discusses Alexandre Lacazette's form for Arsenal this season, and mentions Alvaro Morata
Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata are both struggling for confidence at Arsenal and Chelsea right now, according to Jamie Redknapp.
Both strikers have been getting used to life at their new London clubs after having secured transfers to the Premier League from foreign clubs in the summer window.
Lacazette had made a relatively strong start to life at Arsenal following his big-money move from Lyon, but the forward has now only scored one goal in his last 10 games in all competitions for the Gunners.
It has been a similar story for Morata at Chelsea, with the 25-year-old Spaniard only having found the net twice in his last 10 outings for the Blues.
Both players will be hoping to improve their form in the coming weeks as they look to try and help their teams climb the Premier League table.
And former Liverpool FC midfielder Redknapp sees some similarities between the two players and their current predicaments.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Redknapp said: “His [Lacazette’s] confidence is low and I think it’s a little bit like Alvaro Morata at Chelsea, where maybe not having a winter break has not helped them.
“He will get chances, it’s just whether he’s good enough to take them or not.”
Lacazette will be hoping to help fire Arsenal to a victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League at The Emirates on Saturday.
Morata, meanwhile, will aim to feature when the Blues host Norwich City in the replay of their FA Cup third-round clash on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.
