Arsene Wenger believes that Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette can form a good partnership.

The two played just their second game together against Brighton and although neither of them scored in the 2-0 victory, they were a threat to Brighton’s goal.

The duo combined well during the game and Arsene Wenger sees some encouraging signs of a partnership forming between the two.

“I feel that they combine well together and overall it’s a promising combination,” he told Arsenal Player.

“There are some goals in there and with the providers around I believe we can score more goals.”

Wenger went on to explain what’s required for a partnership to form on the pitch, highlighting the need for the player’s to have the right attitude.

“To adapt to each other [on the pitch], first of all you need the desire to adapt to each other, to make each other better. It’s always the same, I think great players together with the right attitude, they make each other better,” he said.

“If they have not got the right attitude of course then it is a problem but the two of them look to have the right attitude.”

There’s a lot of potential in Arsenal’s front line this season.

On paper, at least, any duo picked from Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil looks very promising. All three playing at the same time would be even better.

Unfortunately, some ill-timed injuries have prevented that from happening so far. With any luck, we’ll get a glimpse of the three together after the international break.

Arsenal have had some memorable partnerships down the years – Ozil and Alexis, Fabregas and van Persie, Henry and Bergkamp – and it’s essential that more of them form over the course of the season if we’re to have any success this campaign.
