Arsenal’s record transfer signing Alexandre Lacazette became the first Gunner to score in his first three home league matches since 1988.
The France international striker has settled down properly at his new home, and after his double against West Brom on Monday evening, the Frenchman has now scored in each of Arsenal’s home league matches this campaign.
In fact, as per Opta stat, the striker is the first Gunner to do this since Brian Marwood back in 1988.
The 26-year-old former Lyon striker opened his goal account at the club just two minutes into the opening day win over Leicester City and scored a beautiful goal in the 3-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth.
His double on Monday night wasn’t the best around. His first goal was a tap-in after he pounced onto an Alexis free-kick to send it back into the net off the bar, while his second goal was a well-taken penalty kick into the bottom corner.
So far, the French man is proving to be the prolific striker Arsenal fans have been hoping for since Thiery Henry left the club. He has just shots against Monday’s opponent and scored two of those shots. Against AFC Bournemouth, he scored a goal from two shots, and against former Premier League Champions Leicester he got a goal from three shots.
