The Sako Race
Lacazette is looking like a better pivot for the Arsenal youngsters than Auba, with Bukayo Saka recently showing he has a goal-laden future.
The much hoped for title race is in danger of slipping away again, but Arsenal will surely offer a far greater challenge to Manchester City than they did back in August - when they lost 5-0.
Mikel Arteta deserves credit for the way he has turned the tide, instilled discipline, and most importantly, brought through the youth. At the heart of that is Bukayo Sako, who at 20 is going through the gears rapidly.
Betfair offer a generous 11/2 on the England winger scoring at the Emirates. Following 3 goals in 2 matches either side of Christmas, that price looks dated.
Saka is now a consistent goal threat with 16 attempts in his last 4 outings, including an incredible 7 against Leeds. City showed they can be got at when conceding 3 to Leicester recently, so the Gunners have a chance here.
