Arsenal star Lacazette missing Ligue 1 as he accuses Premier League of having ‘more spectators than supporters’ – football news

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette admits he misses some aspects of life in Ligue 1, with the former Lyon striker claiming there are “more spectators than supporters” in the Premier League.

The France international is into his second season at Emirates Stadium, having completed a £52 million ($69m) move in the summer of 2017.

He has adjusted well to life in England, following a testing debut campaign, with five goals and three assists recorded this term.

The 27-year-old is enjoying his time with the Gunners, but does feel that the atmosphere back in his homeland is better than that he is currently experiencing in north London.

Lacazette told Le Progres: “I miss Ligue 1’s atmosphere. In England, the fans are more spectators than supporters. There’s a better atmosphere in French stadiums.”

Lacazette made the breakthrough in France with his hometown club Lyon.

He recorded 129 goals in just 275 appearances for the Ligue 1 side before agreeing to take on a new challenge.

There have been plenty of obstacles for him to overcome in England, not just the level of support shown from the stands, with form and fitness issues hindering his cause in 2017-18.

He did, however, find the target 17 times in his debut campaign and will be confident of bettering that return in his second.

Lacazette has struck up a productive partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a man who initially threatened to limit his game time following a January arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

They have 11 goals between them this season and have formed as strong a bond away from the field as they have on it.

“It is good, he is like my brother,” Lacazette said. “We talk every day and we love working together.”

Both Lacazette and Aubameyang were among the goals in their last outing before the international break – a 5-1 mauling of Fulham – and will be hoping to pick up where they left off when Arsenal play host to Leicester on October 22.

Aubameyang vs Henry: Lacazette has his say on comparisons between Arsenal strikers – football news

Alexandre Lacazette is hoping to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang make a similar impact at Arsenal as Thierry Henry managed, with two proven goalscorers having sparked obvious comparisons.

The Gunners have been fortunate to boast many fine frontmen within their ranks during the Premier League era, with a record-breaking achievement baton having passed from Ian Wright to Henry.

Aubameyang is now the leading man at Emirates Stadium, with the Gabonese star having found the target 16 times in 23 appearances following a January arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

That record places him above Henry through the same number of games, with an iconic Frenchman having ended his time in north London with 228 efforts to his name.

Lacazette concedes that Aubameyang, at 29 years of age, is unlikely to get close to that tally, but he can see why an in-form team-mate is being spoken about in the same glowing terms.

He said after seeing a fellow frontman bag a brace off the bench in a 5-1 mauling of Fulham: “It is hard to compare [Aubameyang’s record] with Thierry because he came younger and Auba is at the top of his career but I hope Auba scores as many goals to help us win something.”

Lacazette also netted twice in a convincing Premier League derby win over the Cottagers, taking his personal Arsenal tally to 22 in 49 games.

He has formed a productive partnership with Aubameyang, with the pair having helped the Gunners on a nine-match winning run.

“It is good,” Lacazette said of his relationship with a talented team-mate.

“He is like my brother, every day we talk, we love to work together.”

Lacazette and Aubameyang

The exploits of two prolific goal-getters have helped to lift Arsenal above arch-rivals Tottenham into the Premier League’s top four.

They are only two points back on the leading trio of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, but Lacazette insists nobody is getting ahead of themselves just yet.

“To talk about the top four is early I think,” he said.

“We have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well. Just work as we did and we will see at the end of the season.

Article continues below

“The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better. We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this. 

“It was hard for Fulham because they played well in the first half. They made it hard for us to play but we knew if we kept playing we would score so everyone is happy today.

“We knew if we lost the first two games it wasn’t the end of the world. We have worked and knew we could go forward so everything is better now.”

Aubameyang lauds Arsenal spirit as winning run goes on – football news

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes Arsenal’s thrashing of Fulham on Sunday shows they have cultivated an impressive winning mentality under Unai Emery.

The Gunners made it nine wins in a row in all competitions with a 5-1 victory at Craven Cottage, in which Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette scored twice and Aaron Ramsey netted a stylish backheel.

The result lifts Emery’s side into third place in the table, above Tottenham on goal difference and just a point behind leaders Manchester City ahead of their meeting with Liverpool.

And Aubameyang wants them to maintain their form when they return from the international break with a game against Leicester City on October 22.

“I think we played very well,” he told BT Sport. “We knew Fulham play good football and play with a lot of counters, but I think the team played well.

“I came in and I knew I had to make the difference, and I did.

“We have to keep the mentality. We have a great team spirit, as you can see on the pitch. We’re playing well at this moment and we have to keep focus and continue winning games.”

Lacazette’s opener was cancelled out by Andre Schurrle shortly before half-time, before the France striker fired home his fifth of the season to restore the visitors’ advantage.

The second half turned into something of a procession, but Lacazette insisted the game was not as easy as the scoreline suggested.

“It was hard, even if there’s a big score,” he said. “It was hard to start but we scored many goals, we were compact and we won.

“The coach told us we could win today if we were efficient, that there would be a lot of chances.”

Emery defends Cech after nervy display at Cardiff – football news

Unai Emery has defended the efforts of goalkeeper Petr Cech after another nervy display in Arsenal’s Premier League win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

The 36-year-old, who has kept new signing Bernd Leno out of the team in the opening four matches, has been criticised for struggling to adapt to Emery’s demands for the Gunners to play the ball out of the back consistently.

Cech has been unconvincing at times with the ball at his feet this season and again looked unsettled when he was put under pressure by Cardiff’s attackers in his side’s 3-2 win in Wales.

Emery, though, insists the former Chelsea man is doing what is required.

“He has experience. He is intelligent. He is doing what we want, to build up our job on the pitch,” he told a news conference.

“It’s very important for me to continue doing this and to keep improving.

“If you play long balls every time, you lose personality, you lose moments on the pitch. So, for that, we take a little risk, but when you break this risk and break their [the opposition’s] pressing on the pitch, you can find space to attack.

“For that, it’s clear maybe you can do one mistake, like today, but we need to continue with this personality.”

Arsenal were twice pegged back by Cardiff before Alexandre Lacazette fired home the winner nine minutes from time.

Emery thinks the striker is starting to benefit from increasing self-confidence, with the France international having now been involved in 10 goals in his last nine Gunners starts.

“I knew him from Olympique Lyon and I know he has a big capacity to score when the team gives him good chances,” said Emery. “He has a very good data for scoring. He showed us. I think many important things happened on the pitch.

“The reaction is very important. We’re doing it in each match and today, the same. We needed to win after they [equalised] two times, and I think the reaction was very good.

“They found the chances to score and we need to continue improving in our defensive moments, in the box, not conceding these chances. After that, I think we controlled the match.”

Emery also praised the contribution of Mesut Ozil after he was recalled to the starting line-up, having been dropped for last week’s 3-1 win over West Ham.

Article continues below

“I give every player the same condition and every player is very important,” he said. “But Ozil, with his quality, I think we need him to give us his moments in the match with his quality.

“I think in the second half he played a good match, he worked every minute he was on the pitch.

“Maybe in the second half when we had more control with the ball and in possession, with his position on the pitch, I think he feels better.”
