The France international scored two goals against a plucky West Brom side in his first start alongside Alexis in the league
Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal for a club record fee and he is beginning to show glimpse of the quality which persuaded Arsene Wenger to sign him.
The French striker has now scored in his first three Premier League home games for the club, a record exemplifying his predatory instincts in the final third and showing why the Gunners have needed a striker of Lacazette’s calibre for several seasons.
Alexis Sanchez ended last season with 24 goals and 11 assists, but even that impressive tally could have been higher if he had Lacazette playing alongside him. In the first game the duo have started together they showed mutual understanding and excellent individual moments that contributed to Arsenal’s victory.
