Lacazette backed to shine against Southampton

Charlie Nicholas believes Alexandre Lacazette will shine when Arsenal host Southampton at Emirates Stadium on Saturday 23rd. 

Arsenal will welcome Soton over the weekend at Emirates in a match termed as a must-win for the Gunners. Unai Emery is under pressure due to poor strings of results the most recent being the 2-0 loss to Leicester City just before the international break. 

And former Arsenal forward Nicholas thinks that the game gives Alexandre Lacazette and and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the perfect opportunity to shine.

"This will have been a banker in the past. Southampton normally don't get anything at the Emirates in the Premier League," he told Sky Sports .

"By now, the Arsenal players will have returned and Unai Emery will have had some words to say to them. These are two managers under scrutiny. Southampton are getting credit after their response to the 9-0 drubbing but they keep getting beat. The goalkeeper and the back three are still vulnerable." 

"Alexandre Lacazette was not on international duty and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been a bit quiet recently, so it is time for Arsenal to get back to winning ways."

Emery's men have found themselves eight point off the top four after just 12 matches.
