Players to Watch
Simulations I have run project Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe and Ciaran Clark as the players most likely to score.
Lacazette is on a nine-game goal drought. Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta regards him as a key player in his offense.
“The goals will come for him naturally because he’s a top finisher,” Arteta said.
He has just five goals in 18 Premier League games this season and two of them came in one game against Southampton. He to solve his finishing. He averages 2.1 shots per game but is converting just 13.0 percent of his shots. Arteta might believe in him but I can’t, I see this being a low-scoring game and Lacazette’s struggle will help this total go Under.
Free Soccer Pick: Under 2 3/4 (-106)
