Alexandre Lacazette caused concern when he signalled to the bench against Tottenham before being substituted in the 67th minute but he was merely suffering from cramp rather than a hamstring problem as first feared.
Alexandre Lacazette has, once again, been ignored by Didier Deschamps ahead of this latest international break. That gives him lots of time to let his legs recover following what was a huge effort from him against Spurs on Sunday.
The Frenchman scored his second league goal of the season, despite only playing 147 minutes (that’s a goal every 73.5 minutes if you’re counting).
Speaking after the game, Unai Emery told assembled reporters, “Yes, I think so. It’s not [severe]” when asked if the forward had a hamstring problem, but it seems this is not the case according to Football.London.
There are said to be no serious fears regarding his fitness and he should be available to face Watford on 15 September when club football returns after the break.
