Lacazette sublimated at Lyon
This morning, Arsenal welcomed Wolves in the framework of round 20 of the Premier League. In the 10th minute, Gabriel Magalhaes’ disastrous mistake caused the Emirates team to concede a goal. It wasn’t until the 82nd minute that the striker came on as a substitute for Nicolas Pepe after his ecstatic handling helped the Gunners equalize 1-1.
It was thought that the two teams would accept to leave with 1 point, but in the 90+5 minute, from Pepe’s slit, Alexandre Lacazette escaped with a powerful kick to knock down goalkeeper Jose Sa, setting up a victory upstream 2. -1 for Arsenal.
The French striker is currently taking the captain’s armband after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s tenure. Despite his contract expiring next summer and no sign of an extension, Lacazette still gives 100% every time he plays.
Recently, coach Mikel Arteta said of the 30-year-old striker: ” He behaves like someone who wants to stay with us. We don’t know what will happen at the end of the season.
We don’t have a 20-year contract, that’s our job. I can only commend Lacazette and try to help him.”
Since the beginning of the season, the French star has had 3 goals and 5 assists after 19 appearances in the Premier League.
