Alexandre Lacazette has claimed that he brings something “different” at Arsenal after a string of substitute appearances (via Goal.com).
If one man has shown his qualities during these first three Premier League matches for Arsenal, it has been Alexandre Lacazette.
The French forward has started all three matches from the bench but taken to the field and made a positive impact.
It was Lacazette’s shot which caused the own goal on Saturday and now, the 27-year-old how he felt coming off the bench.
“I knew I could help the team,” Lacazette said after the match.
“What I do is different to everyone else. I just want to play and help my team all the time.

“When you come off the bench you have to be ready for your team-mates, it is what I tried to do and obviously it helped us to get the win.”
It’s clear that Arsenal have looked a lot better this season when Alexandre Lacazette has been on the pitch. It’s probably time for the French forward to start alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Arsenal attack.
