Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted Alexandre Lacazette may be out for some time after getting injured in the 5-0 win over Huddersfield.

Lacazette opened the scoring on three minutes but he never reappeared after the half-time interval and was replaced by Olivier Giroud, who scored twice in the rout at The Emirates.

“We started well but then we lost our focus and our passing and allowed them to come back into the game.

“Then we got the second goal and suddenly everyone played with more freedom and more technical quality – then Mesut Ozil showed what he can do.

“The last 20 minutes became comfortable but I would say Huddersfield did fight very well,” said Wenger.

“In the second half I felt at some stages it could have been 1-1 but when we scored the second goal the game changed completely. We played very well, with freedom. We played a bit on the edge before that.”


On Lacazette’s half-time withdrawal: “It is an injury, it looked like a groin injury so he might be out for a while.”
