Ian Wright has explain the main reason behind Lacazette’s loss of form and insists he is “thinking about the consequences of missing” instead of playing on instinct

Wright,

Arsenal

’s legend, says about

Lacazette

that he has appeared below

Mikel Arteta

’s expectation at Emirates Stadium.

He has been with Arsenal since the summer of 2017 with a £47 million contract and he has scored 51 goals in 135 appearances for Gunnars.

Three of those goals were in Arsenal’s first three matches in

Premier League

, but he has not found the net since a 3-1 defeat to

Liverpool

on September 28.

This player is blamed for most of the losses while Arteta’s squad are trying to show their best performances. His last miss providing costs a lot during a clash with

Aston Villa

on Sunday.

 "I was talking about Mikel and how offensive he wants to be, and it’s impossible in this team," the Gunners legend said on the  Wrighty's House

 

podcast.

"I saw some stats about Lacazette’s average position. For a focal point, he’s not near it.

"With the chance he had, for me, even with no one in the ground, you could see he’s going through that spell as a forward where he’s thinking about his next chance.

"He’s actually thinking about it. I’ve seen him do a couple of headers now where you can tell he’s thinking about it. He’s thinking about it.

"Where that ball came in, you don’t need to think about it, you just need to get it on target. Just control it.

"I believe that even with no fans in there, he’s thinking about his next chance.

"He’s thinking about the consequences of missing. He’s thinking about the fact Arteta is saying: 'We’re not taking our chances'.

"You need to get into the positions where you will score goals and then do what you’ve done for years."
