After the homeside scored three goals in 32 minutes, he’s was the Frenchman’s powerful effort goal given Mikel Arteta’s men some hope of getting some sort of result with over a half left to play.
Lacazette, once again, closer to broken the deadlock early in second-half of the game, only Issa Diop clear off his line. Chambers dinks a brilliant ball over the top with the outside of his foot and Lacazette reaches it, flicking the ball over the onrushing Lukasz Fabianski.
It’s on its way in but Issa Diop gets back just in time to make the clearance, but the Frenchman finally finished up the business, heading home Nicolas Pepe’s cross to salvage a draw for Mikel Arteta’s side.
This is an impressive return for the forward, especially given that he’s rarely thought of as one of the league’s more ruthless and dangerous finishers. By netting in back-to-back Premier League games, Arsenal’s No.9 has reached 11 league goals this season and matched his tally from 2019/20 campaign.
