Arsene Wenger confirmed Alexandre Lacazette will miss Saturday’s clash against Manchester United after picking up a groin injury in the 5-0 win over Huddersfield.
The French striker had given Arsenal the lead at the Emirates after just three minutes, but was substituted at half-time for Olivier Giroud.
Speaking in the press conference after full-time, Wenger admitted that Lacazette could be out for some time.
“It is an injury,” said Wenger. “It looks like a groin injury and he is certainly out on the weekend. He might be out for a while.”
News of Lacazette’s injury means Wenger will likely lean on Giroud for the clash against United.
