​Arsenal manager Arteta working with Lacazette to break form slump

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits he is working with striker Alexandre Lacazette to help the Frenchman find his form.

Lacazette is the man who starts up front for the Gunners, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing from the left.

But he has struggled this term, failing to score for six successive matches, including in Sunday's 3-0 loss at home to Aston Villa.

Speaking in the post-match press conference, the Gunners boss said: "My job is to get the best out of the players and put them in the best possible scenarios.

"If they're not performing, it's because we have to help them more."
