Emery Demands More From Lacazette

Emery Demands More From Lacazette

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hailed the performances of Alexandre Lacazette but believes the striker can get even better. The France international has scored 14 goals in his last 24 games for the Gunners, including a brace in a 5-1 win at Fulham before the international break.

Lacazette moved to the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2017 and is expected to make his 50th appearance for the club when they host Leicester on Monday night.

Despite being a fan of Lacazette, Emery is calling for further improvement from the forward now he has adapted to English football.

“We are speaking together with Laca,” he said. “For him, last year, his first year in the Premier League, it was a different league than the French league also and the position also, the rhythm also, not the mentality because he has a very good mentality and he has very good chances usually to score. He is very efficient.

“But he needs to continue his adaptation for us, for the Premier League, for the rhythm. This year we are looking at him one step more in this level.

“We are very happy but my message to him is: ‘Every day, don’t stop’.
“Don’t stop in training, don’t stop in matches, carry on to find his best performance. Not even just in matches but in each minute of the 90 minutes and he is doing that.”
