Blow for Arsenal as striker ruled out for six weeks

Maybe the confidence is not at its highest because he has seen a competitor coming

Lacazette is expected to be sidelined for at least four-to-six weeks after undergoing surgery on his left knee Tuesday.

After arriving from Lyon as the club's record signing in the off-season for a reported £47.70m, the France global has scored just one goal in his last 10 Premier League games.

Arsene Wenger will have to play without his main striker for their Europa League game this week and the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on February 25.

With the arrival of Aubameyang, the injury that Lacazette sustained against Tottenham during Saturday's north London derby wouldn't normally seem like cause for concern, but Arsenal fans are anxious about what effect his absence will have on their chances of winning the Europa League.

Aside from his lack of goals, Lacazette has seemingly struggled with the physicality of the Premier League and robust defenders have often gotten the better of him in the physical exchanges.

The minor procedure was a success but the 26-year-old will need an extended period of rehabilitation and has been ruled out for between 4 to 6 weeks.

Harry Kane's header won three points for Tottenham, but the scoreline didn't really reflect the game, and the second half in particular.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan got into a few good positions to play in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but failed to make the most of the opportunities, something which was later discussed by Wenger. "We are obviously speculating, but it is a weird one that is hard to pinpoint, because in some games they can show us that they can do it".

Arsenal only have one more game away to a big-six rival this season, but after Saturday's loss, even a win at Man United on April 28 may not be enough for them to secure a top-four finish this campaign. The side will have been disappointed not to have progressed at the top of their group as Athletic Bilbao pipped them to top spot, but they will be hugely excited to come up against Premier League opposition in Arsenal.

"Sometimes you believe that he is my player and I try to boost him". You do not want the players to understand too much about why they don't play.

For Tottenham, however, it was a promising sign considering the fact that a slow start to the game cost them Liverpool's opener last week.
