Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette out for up to six weeks after knee operation

After arriving from Lyon as the club's record signing in the off-season for a reported £47.70m, the France worldwide has scored just one goal in his last 10 Premier League games.

By the time they play again in the Premier League on March 1 - the Carabao Cup final and lack of involvement in the FA Cup next weekend sees them go nearly three weeks without a league game - Arsenal could be 11 points off the Champions League places with just 11 games left to play.

January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan impressed in the north London side's resounding victory over the Toffees in the Premier League.

The minor procedure was a success and he will now undergo a period of rehabilitation.

The Gunners have been criticised for their defensive displays at times this season but Wenger believes it is a failure to take their chances that has cost them most dearly.

But they were readily swept aside by Tottenham, and the final 1-0 scoreline thanks to Harry Kane's towering header more than flattered the visitors.

Tottenham all-but ended our hopes of making the Champions League through our league position, leaving us eight points short of Chelsea in fourth, while Liverpool and Spurs also hold seven and nine point advantages over us. Do they start the game or not?

Despite having the numeric advantage in the midfield, the Gunners still failed to string together passes, which is, obviously, one of the key parts of Arsene Wenger's playing philosophy. Fine goalkeeping will have played a part, but many will argue Arsenal are not being ruthless enough with the opportunities they are creating.

The Arsenal fanbase is restless again and I understand why.

The Frenchman reflected back at Arsenal's poor season so far saying, "We have to win the next game".
