Thierry Henry opens up about Alexandre Lacazette's start to life as an Arsenal player
Thierry Henry says he has been impressed by Alexandre Lacazette’s strong start to life at Arsenal.
The 26-year-old striker was Arsenal’s main signing of the summer transfer window last year as Arsene Wenger moved quickly to bring in the France international from Lyon.
Lacazette has made a solid start to life at The Emirates and has scored eight goals and made three assists in 22 Premier League games for the Gunners so far this season.
The forward has been a regular fixture in Wenger’s team and has started 19 of the club’s 22 Premier League games as they look to try and break back into the top four this term.
Lacazette seems to have showed no problems adapting to the rigours of English football.
And despite hinting that Lacazette could have perhaps scored more goals this season, Henry insisted that he has been impressed by the striker’s form.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Wednesday night, Arsenal legend Henry said: “I like the way he played in so many games where he didn’t score, especially the last two, where he had the ball well and gave goals against Liverpool.
“He just arrived and also you have to give that front three a bit of time to play with each other.
“We all know that Lacazette can do a bit better, especially away from home. But they are starting to have an understanding together, yes.”
Arsenal return to FA Cup action on Sunday with a third-round clash against Nottingham Forest.
The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the last four seasons and they beat Chelsea in the Wembley final last May.
