Ahead of Saturday crucial North London derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur, Wenger says he trusts Alexandre Lacazette totally and isn’t scared of Harry Kane.
The North London’s record signing Lacazette did not start as the Gunners endured an overwhelming loses, 4-0 and 3-1 respectively, in crunch Premier League games away to Liverpool and Manchester City this season.
That has incited suggestion that the Frenchman does not trust Lacazette, a claim Wenger dismissed.
Pressed on the possibility he stays reluctant to use the 26-year-old in the greatest games, he replied: “No, not at all.
“I have a big choice to make every time. Big decisions to make up front. He has played many games, I think it’s only Man City away he didn’t start [recently]. I trust him completely.”

When asked as to whether Lacazette could start against Tottenham Wenger said: “The decision is not made yet, but it’s a possibility.”
Having sat out England’s friendlies against Brazil and France, Tottenham’s Harry Kane is relied upon to start for Spurs, Wenger acknowledging he has made arrangements to battle Pochettino’s lethal weapon
“To keep him quiet, yes,”.
“But, we have no fear, we are focused on finding our strong points and expressing them.”
