Koscielny: No Laca support for Alex

10

Laurent Koscielny says he was impressed by the support given to Alexandre Lacazette by Arsenal fans after he missed a sitter in the game against Southampton on Sunday.

The striker fluffed his lines badly after being set up by Sead Kolasinac, firing over the bar when it looked easier to score, but the skipper was keen play up the positive contribution of the French international and fellow goalscorer Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The duo could both be involved in tonight’s clash with Bournemouth and Koscielny is hopeful Lacazette can make up for the chances he missed in the previous game.

“It was good to see Micki and Laca score,” he told the official programme for tonight’s match.

“There is so much competition for places in our team, in every position, that we all benefit from pushing each other to be better all the time.

โ€œI also liked how the whole stadium rallied around Laca after he missed a big chance in the first half.

“Supporting him like you did was very important to him and the team. We have to show solidarity and unity all the time.

โ€œHe was gutted that he missed but your support and that from the boys on the pitch too helped him to get over it and refocus quickly.

“I told him after the game that he could have had a hat-trick. He will be hungry to make amend for the miss tonight so hopefully, he will get a hat-trick against Bournemouth.”

Let’s hope so. And did we write this story just because we wanted to use that headline?

You bet your arse we did.

Lots of PR geared towards the fans in the stadium at the moment, clearly they want keep the home support off the backs of the team

Jenkinson and Ozil starting

Interesting lineup… Last I checked, Bournemouth attacks from the flanks… Not sure 3 at the back is a good idea. That said, our attack should be terrifying enough!!! COYG๐Ÿ™Œ
