However, Lacazette has overcome the setback in the lead up to the Sheffield United clash and a section of the club’s supporters have expressed their delight over the same.
Lacazette has not taken the playing field for the Gunners since the north London derby in early September and he is likely to lack the match sharpness when compared to his teammates in the frontline.
As such, manager Unai Emery may slowly integrate the Frenchman back into the mix and the 28-year-old could be restricted to a cameo role off the bench during Monday’s clash against Sheffield.
The north London giants are presently outside of the Champions League places in fifth but they can propel into the top four with a victory against the Blades at Bramall Lane.
The Gunners are genuine favourites to beat the Blades but they need to make a quick start off the blocks, considering Sheffield have shown a good defensive resolve when they have been able to settle into games this term.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the main gamechanger upfront this season but the main focus may lie on the performance of record signing Nicolas Pepe, who has struggled with his finishing.
