Mikel Arteta successfully fielded a match-winning line-up against Norwich, resulting in a 1-0 victory. Some Arsenal fans believe that Arteta should keep that starting lineup and let it build momentum, while others, such as Tony Cascarino, a Chelsea legend, do not believe that the lineup against Norwich is effective. Cascarino revealed to Talksport that Arteta's line-up lacked the firepower to score goals, which Arteta's team appears to be struggling to achieve.
Arteta, according to Cascarino, needs to use the players he has because being picky will cost him in the long run. Cascarino believes that Arteta should have found a way to introduce Alexander Lacazette during the game, as even though the introduction of Thomas Partey and Emil Smith Rowe was well calculated as they came in and Arsenal scored minutes later, he believes that an additional introduction of Lacazette would have seen Arsenal go ahead and even score an extra goal. Cascarino told Talksport the following: "He [Arteta] made a lot of changes [vs Norwich]. The big one was the goalkeeper. He brought in Ramsdale for Leno, which was a brave call. Lacazette still can’t get in the starting line-up and I find that quite strange...Out of all the Arsenal strikers, I know they’ve got Aubameyang, but I think he's (Lacazette) more clinical, and I think he can get 10-15 goals quite comfortably. It was a big 3 points after all the stuff surrounding it."
Is Lacazette still a big game player or is his game time at Arsenal going to run out just like his contract is? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
