Mikel Arteta explains dropping Alexandre Lacazette before transfer deadline

Mikel Arteta has revealed the reason behind benching Alexandre Lacazette in the game against Sheffield United. Arsenal are currently playing against Sheffield in the Premier League. Lacazette has been linked with a move from the Premier League side, with Atletico Madrid keen on signing the 29-year-old. “We need to rotate, it’s been very physically and mentally demanding. I want fresh players, again, it’s a very tricky opponent," the Arsenal boss said before kick-off. “We struggled against them last year, we have to be at our best again. “It’s a team that plays with a lot of courage, a lot of determination, high pace and they complicate you with some very simple things. “They have some very good rotations and overloads, they are able to generate in certain areas. You have to control it, let’s see how it goes.” source - DailyStar Join us on Telegram
