Alexandre Lacazette has said what he thinks about the defensive mistakes which have cost Arsenal points so far this season (via The Telegraph).
It was pleasing to see Alexandre Lacazette’s performance against Cardiff City on Sunday.
The Frenchman took advantage of his Premier League start this season to grab an assist and the winning goal.
It was a pleasing result but there were still some problems for the Gunners and now, Lacazette has spoken about the defensive mistakes which almost cost Arsenal on the weekend.
“We have already learned a lot, but mistakes are going to happen. The manager said, if we do this kind of thing, we can concede a goal. So, we know everything. We just did mistakes because we are learning like children,” Lacazette said after the match.
“It is okay, it is good, we will be better week after week. We deserved the win, so before the international break, it was good to get the three points.

“I think we won just two games in 2018 away from home. This season we want to be better away and it was the first game we have won. I hope that it will the first of many.
“It is good to get rid of that mental barrier, it’s important to win away. Like when we started the game like, [we thought] ‘Okay we can play like we do at home’.”
It’s an interesting set of quotes from Alexandre Lacazette. It’s clear that there is a steep learning curve going on at Arsenal right now but if Lacazette’s performance on Sunday is anything to go by, things will progress well.
