There are no hostilities, he’s just always looking to help and improve and it shows the maturity he has.‘He has had a great career so all I can do is take the advice he gives me and try and implement it in my game and do what I do best.’ Metro Sport ReporterMonday 24 Feb 2020 1:36 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link5.6kShares Advertisement Eddie Nketiah insists there are no hostilities after replacing Alexandre Lacazette in the Arsenal team Alexandre Lacazette scored on his last start for the club, against Olympiakos (Picture: Getty Images)Things are certainly looking up for the Gunners under Arteta as the side are now unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions, winning four of their last five.They return to Europa League action on Thursday night, hosting Olympiakos in the second leg of their round of 32 tie, after Lacazette scored the only goal of the first leg in Greece.Nketiah has hailed the atmosphere at the club, especially among the forward line, with everyone trying to help each other improve.‘They’re really good guys off the field and obviously top strikers,’ said Nketiah of his Arsenal team-mates.‘I just try to focus on myself and learn from them, see the things they do well and try to take from it and improve.
