Arsenal New Boy Alexandre Lacazette Scores First Goal For The Club



The Frenchman, who joined from Lyon last week in a deal rumoured to be worth £52m, was introduced as a second-half substitute after starting the game on the bench.

And he needed little over 10 minutes to make his mark on the game.

Alex Iwobi found space on the right-hand side having raced clear of a Sydney defender, picking out Lacazette in the area with a pinpoint cross.

Darting in front of his marker, the prolific forward tapped the ball home to send the crowd wild.

More than 80,000 people are believed to have been in attendance as the Gunners ran out 2-0 winners on the night.

Club captain Per Mertesacker gave Arsenal the lead early in the game, finishing with an acrobatic effort in the fourth minute.

And Danny Welbeck had the chance to double the team's tally from the penalty spot – but the former Man Utd man saw his effort saved by the keeper.

Sead Kolasinac – acquired on a free transfer from Schalke 04 earlier this summer – also made his debut, playing 68 minutes before being withdrawn.

The Gunners play the next of their five remaining preseason fixtures against the Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday.

Coach Arsene Wenger remains confident that contract rebel Alexis Sanchez will remain at Arsenal, with talks ongoing to keep the Chilean winger at the Emirates beyond next season.

However, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be on his way out, with negotiations between club and player believed to be on the rocks.
