Alexandre Lacazette peculiarly reacts to scoring equaliser for Arsenal vs Southampton during their Premier League encounter at the Emirates.
Arsenal have now gone 5 matches in the Premier League and 6 in all competitions without a victory. The pressure continues to build on the team and more so on their boss, Unai Emery. 3 points in 5 matches is simply not good enough for a side that once regularly challenged for the Premier League title.
However, they could have endured yet another loss, if not for Alexandre Lacazette’s 96th minute equaliser. Southampton, sitting down at 19th place, registered 21 shots in the match! And the Gunners were lucky to have a point to their name. While Emery had no reaction to the leveller, Lacazette had a rather odd one,

With the game in its dying minutes, Lacazette fired one in to find the back of the net. He had scored both of Arsenal’s goals in the match. However, rather than celebrating, he looked down and touched the ground. It was as if he were frustrated that the match had to come to that point where the team had to dig deep just to get a point.
Lacazette saves Arsenal’s bacon 😅

Earlier in the match, Southampton took the lead with a cleverly taken free kick. With Arsenal defenders caught napping, Danny Ings scored in the 8th minute to give the Saints the lead. Lacazette then equalised 10 minutes later.
James Ward-Prowse then put the visitors on top again in the 71st minute only for Lacazette to cancel it late in the match. This match clearly exposes Unai Emery’s inept tactics and will give more credibility to the demands for his sacking. With Pochettino already gone, could Unai Emery be the next Premier League manager to lose his job?
