In-form Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has heaped praise on Leicester City star Jamie Vardy as the two teams prepare to face each other in a Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
The French international spoke about Vardy in an interview monitored by the Daily Star as he lauded the retired English international for his ruthlessness and finishing ability in the opposition box.
Lacazette and Arsenal would be hoping to record a 10th straight victory in all competitions when they host the Foxes.
A win would make it seven successive victories for the Gunners in the Premier League and it could take the North Londoners as high as the third position on the league table.
A fourth straight league victory at home would take Arsenal to within two points of leaders and defending champions Manchester City.
Former Lyon striker Lacazette would be hoping to play a prominent role for his team against the Foxes.
The 27-year-old has started the last five league games and he’s expected to lead the line against Leicester City.
The September Player of the Month Award nominee has contributed four goals and four assists in just five starts and three substitute appearances.
He was on target twice in the last league match, a 5-1 win over Fulham.
