The manager has responded to Alexis Sanchez’s return to the team following injury – which has given fans a massive boost – but dropping the club-record signing to the bench – which has in turn annoyed the supporters.
Despite it being just the Gunners third game of the season, Wenger has seemed to say Lacazette is till adapting to the Premier League – he has found the net once already – and the best way to do that is by putting him on the bench.
Wenger said of his decision to bench the Frenchman: “Lacazette is still in an adaptation phase.
“It’s down to the fact the trio finished well the season before and they are used to the big occasions in the Premier League.
“It’s difficult to choose from.”
