Arsenal star says “we're doing everything we can to improve."

Lacazette says the Gunners need to “pick up the slack”.

Alexandre Lacazette has told his Arsenal teammates to stop being complacent after dropping eight points behind the Premier League’s top four.

The Gunners fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City just before the international break and they now sit in sixth spot in the league table after racking up 17 points.

France international Lacazette who has scored two goals in nine appearances this season for Unai Emery’s side said they need to “pick up the slack”.

"Obviously we're not at the top of our game at the moment," Lacazette told the club's official website.

"But we remain leaders in the Europa League, we're still in the running in the championship. I think now we just need to work on keeping things calm and moving forward with that.

"We're working together every day on a constant basis to pick up the slack."

A run of poor display as put the Arsenal manager under immense pressure, but Lacazette says the Spaniard has the support of his players.

"The group definitely supports the coach and I'm sure the club does as well," he said. "We're a very tight group and we're doing everything we can to improve."
