Why Alexandre Lacazette is missing for Arsenal vs Southampton

Arsenal take on Southampton at St Mary’s at 3 pm UK time on Saturday.

The match is a must-win for Arsenal if they are to have any hope of securing a top-four berth this season.

Southampton are 14th in the league with 36 points from 31 games, meaning they are basically safe from relegation and have little left to play for this term.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are 5th in the Premier League, and began the weekend three points off Tottenham with a game in hand.

Elsewhere though, Alexandre Lacazette, who it was reported had missed training earlier this week, was also absent.

Now, an official explanation for the striker’s absence has been provided, with it reported on Friday that Lacazette has been suffering from illness:

Said illness has since been confirmed to be Covid-19:
