Alexandre Lacazette admits he has plenty of room for improvement at Arsenal this season
Alexandre Lacazette has admitted that he must improve his decision making at Arsenal this season.
The French striker is aiming to establish himself as one of the starting forwards in Unai Emery’s Gunners team as he bids to hold down a regular spot in the first team at The Emirates.
The France international has now begun his second season with the Gunners and he is looking to try and help the north London side enjoy a strong season under their new manager.
Lacazette is facing an increase in competition for places at The Emirates after the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window.
And the attacker has conceded that he needs to work on certain aspects of his game as he looks to try and impress new boss Emery this term.
Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Player before the clash against West Ham this weekend, Lacazette said: “I have to be more powerful and be quicker in my decision making.
“It’s harder in England than in France, so I have to take in information quicker and be more powerful.
“We just need time to adapt to Emery’s football. I know we worked hard in pre-season and it will be better now.
“We can also see that when everyone works as a team and we understand what the coach asks us to do, we can be a good team. ‘We just need to be more efficient with our chances so that we score more goals. We’ll keep going and we’ll keep working.”
Arsenal are aiming to at least challenge for the Premier League title this season after they ended up in sixth place in the table and without a trophy last term.
The north London side have not won the Premier League since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign under Arsene Wenger.
