Alexandre Lacazette goal vs Chelsea: The forward opened the goalscoring for Arsenal with a brilliant finish.
Arsenal have been shaky in their last few games in the Premier League. The side has dropped points in five league games since December, including a loss to West Ham last weekend.
However, as the side took the field against Chelsea, the Gunner responded brilliantly as Lacazette opened the goalscoring.
The forward scored with an exquisite finish as he gave Arsenal the lead in the game, before Laurent Koscielny doubled the lead at the brink of halftime.
Granit Xhaka took a short corner and Lacazette ended the move with a brilliant finish from a difficult angle to score the opener in the game.
Here’s Lacazette’s goal vs Chelsea:

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Lacazette’s performance:
Arsenal deservedly ahead. Super piece of forward play by Lacazette. Lack of anything so far from Chelsea.

GOAL: Arsenal 1-0 Chelsea
That’s a great finish. Arsenal work a short corner and it finds its way to Alexandre Lacazette, who rifles one past Kepa Arrizabalaga into the top corner.#ARSCHE #bbcfootball https://t.co/6jOhslEBiK pic.twitter.com/Gb3OlnUULV

Just want to point out that Lacazette gave us THREE goal celebrations on one goal and that has to be the ratio in the Premier League. Here’s celebration no. 1. pic.twitter.com/f0TobmvOhN

Hoping Lacazette isn’t taken off here. He’s been excellent. Key to the high press when it’s worked.

Boos for Emery as Lacazette is taken off for Iwobi. Ramsey off for Maitland-Niles as well while Giroud on for Willian. Giroud gets a decent reception.

Nah Aubameyang has to be going off there instead of Lacazette.

It’s probably not a popular choice to take Lacazette and Ramsey off but they have both worked so hard closing down Jorg.
