Alexandre Lacazette limped off just 12 minutes into Arsenal‘s Emirates Cup clash with Lyon, but Unai Emery has downplayed concerns.
Playing against his former club, Lacazette took an early blow to his ankle and attempted to run it off, but was in discomfort as he was replaced by young winger Reiss Nelson.
Lyon went on to win the match 2-1 behind a pair of second-half goals from Moussa Dembele.
With the Gunners’ Premier League opener against Newcastle just two weeks away, manager Emery expressed his belief after the match that there wasn’t much to worry about.
“The doctor said to me he’s going to check tomorrow,” Emery said in his post-game press conference.
“It’s in his ankle. He’s going to be assessed over the next few days – it’s not serious.”
