Alexis Sanchez has hailed the qualities of Alexandre Lacazette, in particular his finishing skills.
He also says that the duo can work well together, although due to injuries, a late start to the season, and the manager fiddling around with his team a lot, it’s not something we’ve seen enough of in this current campaign.
In the summer we all hoped that a front three of Ozil, Alexis and Lacazette might prove troublesome for the Premier League, but as yet we’ve yet to see that trio start a game together.
It might be something we get tomorrow when we face Everton at Goodison Park, but ahead of that Sanchez has been talking to the official site about the club’s record signing.
“When he has a goalscoring chance, he is a good finisher,” he said. “He’s a classic striker.
“He was a successful player in France, and the two of us work well together. He’s an excellent player.”
Asked if they have an understanding on the pitch yet, he continued, “I believe we have. We haven’t played that many games together but when we have, I like how he plays.
“He finds space and understands the game well. He is very talented.”
We could do with both of them developing that understanding even further tomorrow, because if they do there’s a struggling Everton defence we could cause some real problems.
