Alexandre Lacazette has said that he didn’t even realise he had broken an Arsenal Premier League record when he scored against West Brom on Monday night (via Arsenal.com).
It was very pleasing to see Alexandre Lacazette get on the score sheet twice against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.
His goals were far from complicated but it’s those types of finishes which Arsenal have often been missing in recent seasons.
His first-half strike also made history for the club as Lacazette became the first Gunners player to score a goal in each of his first three Premier League home matches.
“They said I did, but I am not looking for this particular type of record but more stability with the team,” Lacazette said of the record.
“We won and we won with a clean sheet. All was perfect, possession, goals. During the month of September we have reconstructed ourselves defensively, we are working together.”

Alexandre Lacazette was in the right place for his first goal and held his nerve for his second on a pleasing win to mark an excellent start to his Arsenal career at the Emirates. He’s still got some way to go but the next target is Thierry Henry’s all-time tally of 228 goals for the club. Only 224 to go.
