Who said what? as Lacazette fires Arsenal past West Brom

26 Septembre 2017

Arsenal's match victor on the night was Alexandre Lacazette, whose twin strikes either side of half-time saw his team move up to seventh in the Premier League.

Arsenal picked up a huge point last Sunday, drawing with Chelsea 0-0 at Stamford Bridge.

The long-serving Frenchman speaking after his side beat Tony Pulis' Baggies side 2-0 through a brace from record signing Alexander Lacazette was not impressed with the short turn-around time and extensive travelling.

"The referee left the advantage and they almost scored from that and they hit the post", he added.

Ramsey was delighted to see his side match the result of the title favourites and has urged them to keep up winning ways at home. "I think the decision is defendable on both sides", he added.

"We were a lot more organised, the distances between the units were a lot smaller. We feel we can still do better, but it's good".

However, three minutes later, West Brom had another golden chance. "The whole team is working for each other, that's what makes the difference".

Mohamed Elneny started in Arsenal's midfield alongside Granit Xhaka, while Ahmed Hegazi lead West Brom's defense alongside Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson.

"He is not in full training yet, he needs a few games with the reserve team, so I think if all goes well, it will be after Christmas". "It's anecdotal, it's not the kind of record I look for".

"I'm not going to be rolling round and trying to win free-kicks if it's not a free-kick", said the former Southampton and Burnley man.

The France worldwide received a warm ovation from the Emirates Stadium crowd when he was replaced eight minutes from time.

"With the pressure that every club is under now, you can not sacrifice any competition", the Frenchman said.

"We had to come out a little bit more and when Arsenal have got that space in between the lines they move the ball ever so well and they can hurt you, but we're disappointed".
