Wenger reveals why he has substituted Lacazette in 10 of his 11 starts for Arsenal

By Isoccer Staff

Arsene Wenger has admitted there are a number of factors behind his decision to regularly substitute Alexandre Lacazette.

The Arsenal striker has been withdrawn on 10 of his 11 starts since his big-money arrival from Lyon in the summer.

He was replaced by Danny Welbeck with 10 minutes to go at Burnley on Sunday before Alexis Sanchez struck a controversial winner.

Many Arsenal fans have criticised Wenger for continually substituting the French international but the Gunners boss has explained his decision.

“First of all, I would like to say in my job, you sub strikers more than defenders,” he said ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Huddersfield.

They have to create, provoke and be incisive.

“I have other options on the bench who are fresh and give us other variations in our attack.

“A lot of teams change their strikers around 60-80 minutes.

Wenger insisted he was happy with the striker’s performances since moving to the Emirates.

“He has adapted physically to the Premier League and I am very happy with his work,” he added.

“The Premier League demands a huge intensity of work.”
