Lacazette: Arsenal believe we can can compete against Premier League elite

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette spoke positively of his side’s ability to compete against the rest of the Premier League’s top six, following the Gunners’ 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Emirates.

In the later years of Arsene Wenger’s reign, Arsenal struggled to take points from the divisions’s stronger sides, but Lacazette now feels the club have what it takes to mix it with the best.

“The first big game we lost but we knew if we work like we did for 12 games we can have points and we felt we had the quality to play the top of the league tonight.’’ He told BT Sport.

The former Lyon forward scored his fifth league goal of the campaign to rule out James Milner’s 61st minute strike and extend his side’s current unbeaten run to 14 matches in all competitions.

”The first half was hard, but in the second half we were better and more physical.” He added.
