Petr Cech says Arsenal can do more in the final third to get the best out of striker Alexandre Lacazette.
The France international has 8 goals to his name since moving to the Emirates from Lyon for £46.5 million, a solid return for a debut season in a team that has struggled for goals in recent weeks.
Admitting that the attacker, who is often seen signalling for the ball early, could be better serviced, Cech told Arsenal.com: “Alex is a very intelligent player. The way he plays the game, obviously he has adapted quickly to the way we play.
“I think we, as a team, we need to get more out of him because sometimes he makes a very good movement but the ball does not arrive every time at the right moment. I think it’s a matter of time.
“But for a player who has just come to the Premier League, I think he’s had a pretty good run. He has immense quality in front of the goal. If you see his ratio from how many shots he actually takes it’s just a matter of time before more goals will come.”
Cech and Lacazette are expected to drop out of Arsene Wenger’s starting lineup for tomorrow’s Carabao Cup quarter-final with West Ham.
