Lacazette out with ankle injury till October

ARSENAL have confirmed that striker Alexandre Lacazette will miss the rest of September with an ankle injury.

The club have stated that the Frenchman has been playing with this injury for several weeks, but that further assessments have shown that rest is required to strengthen his ankle, in order to return to full fitness.

Having scored in first-half stoppage time last time out against Tottenham, Lacazette was substituted in the 67th minute.

The 28-year-old is now likely to miss Premier League matches against Watford, Aston Villa and Manchester United – as well as the beginning of the Gunners’ Europa League and Carabao Cup campaigns.
