Alexandre Lacazette Set To Return Against Stoke City



Alexandre Lacazette is set to make his return against Stoke City on Sunday, the £52million Arsenal striker has been out for the past four-weeks after he needed surgery to his left knee.

Lacazette finished a full training session with the rest of the first-team squad on Wednesday and the Gunner’s boss Arsene Wenger is giving a genuine thought to including the France international against Stoke at the Emirates on Sunday.

The 26-year old may well be among the substitutes against relegation hopefuls Stoke City and is the line for a second-half appearance.

Wenger needs Lacazette fit for the crucial first leg of the Europa League quarter-final tie against CSKA Moscow next Thursday, winning the Europa League will secure Champions League football for Arsenal next season.

The North-London side are short of firepower in their European crusade. Their £58million frontman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible in light of the fact that his former club Borussia Dortmund were in the Europa League when Arsenal secure his service.

Lacazette is returning with more than great expectations at his feet, this conveys his whole future also. It’s a dependable fact that it’s a not as much as alluring circumstance for him to be in, as he needs to battle hard for a regular place and may never have the capacity to overtake Aubameyang.

On the off chance that he turns out and duds, that mountain he needs to climb will begin to look inconceivable. Aubameyang has more experience, a superior record, good value and Lacazette simply has his scoring record.
