Lacazette scores first Arsenal goal at the Emirates

Lacazette celebrates his goal against Sevilla.

Wenger’s £52 million signing has got off to a flying start after scoring again, this time against Sevilla to net his first home goal with an Arsenal shirt.

Arsene Wenger wanted a No 9 and he has one. The Frenchman was exactly where he had to be inside the box to side-foot a composed finish into the bottom corner.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain worked well down the right before picking out Welbeck in the middle. The former United man scuffed his effort but it fell kindly to Lacazette who did the rest.

He is off the mark at the Emirates and Wenger will be delighted.
