Lacazette: The Premier League has not yet seen the best of me

Lacazette: The Premier League has not yet seen the best of me

French striker Alexandre Lacazette believes he still has a lot of room for improvement and can get better for Arsenal in the English Premier League this season.

The striker scored over the weekend in their 2-1 win over Burnley and has scored a total of 37 goals in his 89 appearances across all competitions for Arsenal since joining them from Lyon in the summer of 2017.

He told French outlet Canal+: “The Premier League has not yet seen the best Lacazette. It has seen some very good, but not the best. I can score more goals and be more consistent.”

The 28-year-old has developed an impressive partnership with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and scored 14 Premier League goals last season, eight fewer than the Gabonese.

Hit Back

The striker meanwhile has hit back on Burnley coach Sean Dyche after he accused Arsenal of ‘cheating’ in their weekend win.

Dyche said: ‘It’s grown to a level where it’s not a silly thing. It’s every week now. You know on Match of the Day they used to highlight it… going back seven or eight years they used to highlight it – now they don’t even show it!”

Lacazette clearly saw the funny side after the match and responded to a clip of Dyche’s rant on Instagram. After ‘liking’ the post by ‘threesixtytv_’, Lacazette replied with three crying laughing emojis in the comments section.
