Lacazette insists Arsenal will fight to the end in race for top four

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette has insisted his side with fight on to the end, in the race for a top four finish.

The 27-year-old France international striker scored the opening goal, during his sides huge 2-0 win over Chelsea at The Emirates on Saturday, and was up beat about their chances of Champions League qualification.

“We did what the coach asked of us.’’ Lacazette told BT Sport.

“We worked and fought all game, so it’s good.

“It was not easy for us, but I’m happy to score and help the team.

“We are now three points from Chelsea so we are still in the race and we’ll fight until the end.”

Lacazette has scored eight times in the Premier League so far this season as Unai Emery’s Arsenal have made a genuine fight for a top four spot. Their impressive 2-0 win over a misfiring Chelsea, leaves them just three points behind their London rivals with 15 games still to play.

Former Lyon striker Lacazette has been a consistent goal threat for The Gunners since a £46.5 million move in July 2017. Arsenal will need him and all of their forwards firing and in form if they are to close the gap on Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea and beat off competition from a revived Manchester United, for a place in next season’s Champions League.
