Opinion: Lacazette's Performance Against Crystal Palace Is Why Arsenal Needs To Extend His Contract.

Alexander Lacazette has once again shown that he has the attitude and desire to win, after getting the last minute equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday 18th October. That is a mentality most Arsenal players lack and also needs to imbibe in the younger players, which is why the club needs to extend his contract.

The 30 year-old deserves to start for the club, genuinely don’t understand why he’s constantly being benched when he brings so much energy and positivity to the squad. The manner in which Arsenal conceded the 2 goals was ridiculous, they desperately lacked presence in their half until Lacazette came on.

Lacazette was on the pitch for just 23 minutes and he became Arsenal's man of the match before that equaliser. Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira, has had much less time than Mikel Arteta, with a much worse squad, but the Eagles seemed far more comfortable in possession for much of the game than Arsenal.
