Wenger Admits Aubameyang Arrival May Be Responsible for Lacazette's Derby Misses

Lacazette's absence is likely to mean further pressure on Arsenal's big-money January transfer window signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was snapped up from Borussia Dortmund for a fee in excess of £50m.

Arsene Wenger conceded Arsenal's hopes of ending their Champions League exile are in severe danger after Harry Kane condemned them to a damaging 1-0 defeat against bitter rivals Tottenham.

The French global has had a hard time of late, scoring just once in his last 13 games, and his confidence is unquestionably low.

Mordaunt is expected to say: "The sexual exploitation of vulnerable people, vulnerable children, is never acceptable". Oxfam's deputy chief executive Penny Lawrence stepped down earlier this week over the handling of the scandal.


Now with 45 points, Arsenal had five more last season after 27 games.

"Maybe the confidence is not at its highest because he has seen a competitor coming in for him".

It's true that Arsenal don't have a game scheduled for the weekend.

Lacazette will also be absent for the league meeting against Manchester City at the Emirates, which takes place a week after the two sides meet in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

They play in Sweden's top division, The Allsvenskan. Wenger has tinkered with tactics, formations, personnel as well as adding to and subtracting from his squad, like a scientist looking for the ideal formula, but nothing has worked. In their last five they were able to win three, draw once and lose once, which saw them onto 13 points. "I believe that our away record is one of the worst it's been since I've been in England", Wenger told the Evening Standard.

So while "should they focus on Europa League or the Premier League" used to be a fun academic exercise, now, a lot more hinges on correctly answering that question than it did a week ago. "Then at the start of the second half we should have lost the game by more", he said. This defence is in no way shape or form good enough to win the Europa League.
