Michael Owen has warned Arsenal about repeating last season’s mistakes but he is expecting Arsene Wenger’s latest signing to be a hit.
The BT Sport pundit has often been criticized in the past for being too harsh with his judgements about the Gunners who are yet to win the Premier League title since 2004.
And Owen feels there is some work to do in order to prevent the title drought from continuing.
“Arsenal should be concerned that a bad start to the season will have a negative impact.” Owen said
“The signing of Alexandre Lacazette has been a positive, but they will need to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez to really signal their intent.”
But when asked about which striker in the Premier League is most likely to win the Golden Boot at the end of the season, Owen picked Arsenal’s new signing.
“Alexandre Lacazette is a proven goalscorer. He had the highest chance conversion rate in Europe’s top five leagues last season and Arsenal create plenty of chances, so he should get plenty of opportunities.” he added
