Last night, Alexandre Lacazette won over Gunners hearts when he scored on his Premier League debut for Arsenal, making him the fifth player to score on his first official outing for the London club. Can you guess who else did so?
The Frenchman couldn’t have asked for the more perfect start to his career at the Emirates Stadium, when he put Arsenal in the lead against Leicester City with a goal in the second minute of play.
His strike sparked an onslaught of goals between the two clubs, as Arsene Wenger’s side claimed the three points in the seven-goal thriller.
