Arsene Wenger believes that Alexandre Lacazette has gotten better at Arsenal after the forward scored within two minutes of his Premier League debut (via Arsenal.com).
It was one of the most unforgettable opening day matches in recent memory as Arsenal beat Leicester City 4-3 at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners went behind twice and only led the game for less than ten minutes despite Alexandre Lacazette putting his new side a goal up early on.
It took the new signing just 94 seconds to score on his Premier League debut and now Arsene Wenger has spoken about his new man.
“Lacazette is simple in every game,” Wenger said after the match.
“He is stronger since he has joined us, you know and even when I played Giroud through the middle and him on the left.

“He did very well on the left, so overall I think he adapts slowly to the way we want to play and he is a collective player and an intelligent player as well.
It was great to see Alexandre Lacazette get his first Arsenal goal and in such an incredible match too. His touches were classy and he oozed quality both up front and on the left but more importantly, he got his name on the scoresheet. Arsene Wenger will be delighted if Lacazette puts in more performances like this.
