Things haven’t been going smoothly for Arsenal and France international Alexander Lacazette since he joined the team two seasons ago.
The player couldn’t get regular action during Arsene Wenger time at the Emirates Stadium as his compatriot preferred Danny Welbeck, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan to him.
When Wenger relieved himself of the Gunners job, Lacazette was a happy man because he believed has another chance to lay claim for a place in the next manager’s starting lineup.
However, that wasn’t the case for the Frenchman as he was overlooked by Unai Emery in his first eleven for the first three games and for the season, though, he came off the bench in all the games.
Finally, the striker was given the nod to start alongside his ‘friend’ Aubameyang in the game against Cardiff earlier today.
Lacazette grabbed the opportunity with both hands as he was brilliant from start to finish, linking up well with his striking partner.
He provided an assist for Aubameyang’s goal while the Gabonese also returned the favour by proving assisting the Frenchman’s goal.
Cardiff scored two goals into the second half of the encounter thinking that the game will end up in a draw, Lacazette scored the last goal of the game nine minutes from time.
Having scored the winning goal for the Gunners, Lacazette call on Emery to start using him alongside Aubameyang in subsequent games.
“For me, it was important to start well. I wanted to prove to the coach that I can be in the first 11. I think I did that and I’m happy.” he said
