Lacazette gives positive medical update after Arsenal striker landed on head in worrying clash with Man Utd’s Maguire – Bukipress

ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE gave Arsenal supporters a positive update after landing on his head in a worrying clash with Harry Maguire.

The Gunners striker, 29, took to Instagram and posted a selfie from what appeared to be a hospital room on Saturday night.

He captioned a selfie wearing his Arsenal tracksuit and face mask: “All good over on this side.

“Thanks for the doctors for the support and the fans for their concern.”

There was major concern over the Frenchman following the collision in the 90th minute of Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with United at the Emirates last night.

Lacazette – who came closest to breaking the deadlock with a free-kick that crashed the underside of the bar – and Maguire challenged for an aerial ball but both players went down injured requiring medical attention.

The United captain was able to come back on but the Arsenal man stayed down for around three minutes.

He was clearly groggy and struggling when he did get up and gingerly trudged off the field to be replaced by Eddie Nketiah with suggestions he may be concussed.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was certainly fearing the worst for his No9.

He said: “He landed on his head, I don’t know, they will check him, the doctor is on it.


“He was feeling fine right now, so hopefully it’s nothing important.

“It’s a big worry because we have so many players out at the moment and some players who are struggling to keep playing minutes.”

Arteta will be desperate to have his top scorer available and back in action as soon as possible with two trips to the West Midlands to face Wolves and Aston Villa in the next six days.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was unavailable for the visit of United after visiting his ill mother while Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney were also missing.

Asked about Aubemeyang’s return, Arteta added: “We are following the rules and the protocols right now and the protocols say that he cannot be involved at the moment.

“We have to respect that and the doctor is managing the situation.

“It’s because he had a family issue that he had to attend to and these are the consequences of that.”
