A major concern on the individual front was confirmed against Premier League giants Arsenal on Thursday afternoon.
The player who left Mikel Arteta and his companions. Sweating ahead of this weekend’s Premier League fixture list? Alexandre Lacazette.
As confirmed by a number of sources present at the Gunners training base in London Colney today, Hitman Lacazette was not among the host of first-team stars to have had their strides made by Arteta’s president and the club’s coaching staff.

Word of Lacazette’s new absence comes after similar reports circulated on Wednesday, confirming that both the Frenchman, and long-time defensive absent Takehiro Tomaisu, were not seen anywhere in London Colney:
Takehiro Tomiyasu is still not in the group training session today. Alexandre Lacazette is also absent.

Lacazette’s absence from training on successive days appears, of course, to indicate concern over the killer’s injury, ahead of the club’s return to action on Saturday afternoon.
A trip to St Mary’s to face Southampton led by Ralph Hsenhuttl lies in store, with Arsenal of course preparing to head into action looking to return to their much-needed winning ways.
The shock 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton & Hove Albion last time cemented a worrying drawback for Arsenal, after they were saber by rivals Crystal Palace in the club’s previous game.
In contrast, the North London giants seem to have been overtaken by rivals Tottenham in the race for fourth place in the Premier League, sitting three points behind Antonio Conte and his companions, albeit in possession of a match in hand.
