Why Alexandre Lacazette is reaching the crunch point of his Arsenal career

It was only a little pause, a brief moment of deliberate hesitation, but for Arsenal it was the difference between a goal and a wasted opportunity.

Receiving the ball on the edge of the Crystal Palace penalty box last weekend, Alexandre Lacazette saw the run of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang between the opposition defenders, but waited just a split second before playing his pass.

The fact remains, though, that Lacazette has now gone six matches without a goal.

It was a moment of delicate skill, an instant appreciation of angles and movement, that encapsulated the best of Lacazette since his arrival in north London in the summer of 2017.

The hope now is that Mikel Arteta’s arrival will invigorate Lacazette in the same way it has energised so many of his team-mates, although the 28-year-old has so far needed more time than others to adapt to the Spaniard’s methods.

That assist against Palace was certainly an encouraging sign.

He also endured a six-game goalless run across October and November, upon his return from injury, and it says plenty of his own frustrations this campaign that he has scored as many goals (six) as he has received yellow cards.
