      Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has admitted Alexandre Lacazette is suffering from a crisis in confidence after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took his place.

      Lacazette has struggled to adapt to English football since his £52million arrival last summer and wasted two late chances to steal a point for the Gunners in Saturday’s 1-0 North London derby defeat to Tottenham.

      Wenger believes Aubameyang’s presence has affected Lacazette, who has now been relegated to the substitutes’ bench.

      “Maybe the confidence is not at its highest because he has seen a competitor coming in.

      “But, for him, one against one with the keeper, he is still a good goal-scorer. He has gone through difficult periods before.

      “He works hard in training, works on his finishing. I don’t know what happened, did he not touch the ball well? It can happen, it is a fraction of a second. But he created two chances. That is a quality as well.

      “He will score goals. He is a goal-scorer, he scored goals in his whole career. He will score again,” Wenger said.
