Gary Lineker sends message to Arsenal fans about Alexandre Lacazette
Arsenal cruised to a 2-0 victory over Toffees Everton who now sit at 12th position on the Premier League standings, to finish sixth over the weekend.
Alexander Lacazette rifled a shot in the 56th minute to give Arsenal the lead, before Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed the win for the Gunners three minutes later, to earn Emery is fourth consecutive win this season.
It was stalemate at first half at the Emirates, until Lacazette’s powerful strike force bellows of excitement to crack the air.
The Frenchman’s opener meant the Gunners were en route to their fourth consecutive victory.
Former England striker Gary Lineker praised the Frenchman’s quality on the pitch after his stunning strike.
The BBC pundit, who’s ranked eight in the World for highest goals scored in the World Cup (10), took to Twitter to lavish plaudits on the French striker.
He said: “Been a long wait for a goal today, but that is a stunning finish by Lacazette.”
Arsenal could not sidestep the quick front surges of Everton’s frontline, who threw everything they had in the first half of the match.
The Gunners should have been a goal or two down, save the superb flying saves of Petr Cech, which kept them out of trouble.
Afterwards, Emery complained about not controlling the “ball like we want”, despite his nod of satisfaction about his team’s showoff.
