With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang suspended for Arsenal’s next three games, the weight of goalscoring responsibility will fall on his mate Alexandre Lacazette.
Unfortunately, the Frenchman is struggling in front of goal right now, and hasn’t scored in the Premier League since December 5th when he bagged one against Brighton in a game we ended up losing.
It has led to worries about how we’ll cope without the captain and leading goalscorer, but Sokratis believes that Laca will come good and find his shooting boots again.
“He’s a machine, a goal machine,” said the mournful centre-half. “He’s a very good player.
“In some games, from the outside, you can’t see what he can do. Or maybe he is a little bit struggling. But we have see also how is the game and which guy he has behind him.
“I think he is a very good player, we are with. Him every time, he is with us and we will show all together in the future a lot of things.
“I think Laca is coming better and better. He’s very important, a massively important player for us.
“Altogether we have to improve, to step up and to show that the year is not finished and that we have to fight for this.”
Let’s hope he’s right because we need him to start scoring again ASAP.
