According to Jamie Redknapp, he believes Unai Emery needs to make one change to his starting line up in other for the Gunners to become a team to reckon with in the Premier League.
Emery must start Alexandre Lacazette every week as the Frenchman has the pace and power as he can penetrate defences to see Arsenal compete with the big boys of the division.
The new Arsenal boss registered his first win over the weekend against West Ham united after losing back-to-back against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively.
Lacazette introduction over the weekend saw the Frenchman have a hugely positive impact on the Gunners’ overall performance, as well as the all-important final result.
“When I look at the Arsenal squad Unai Emery has inherited, the two real gems are Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
“Their pace and power would strike fear into plenty of Premier League defences, particularly those outside the top six. Emery has to find a way to get them both into the team. Saturday’s victory against West Ham showed him why he must do so.
“Starting as a lone striker on Saturday, Aubameyang was isolated. West Ham dominated in the first half, Arsenal had just two efforts on target and their centre-forward failed to have a single touch in the opposition box.
“Bringing on Lacazette at half-time was a game-changer. Straight away Arsenal looked more threatening. They had eight attempts on target and scored the two goals that won them the game.”
