Arsene Wenger: This is what it means for Alexandre Lacazette to score after 15 minutes into his debut

By

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted after Alexandre Lacazette scored his first goal for the club.

It didn't take long for the Frenchman to find the back of the net as he got off the mark for the Gunners just 15 minutes into his debut.

Wenger was also full of praise for Danny Welbeck despite the striker's missed penalty early in the second half.

"It is important for him to get that [first goal] off his shoulders because you expect to score if you are a striker," Wenger told reporters.

"You could see that he was happy but overall what we were looking for was to play at pace and to develop our collective game and for long periods in the game that was quite good for us.

"We had tough opposition because they fought for every ball but at the end of the day their goalkeeper was the man of the match.

"[Danny Welbeck?] I would say that he worked very hard.

"He made many chances in the first half and was so keen to score that sometimes he looked too much for power.

"He put into the game what we expect of him. He's a great team player and I expect him to have big season. He was out for such a long time that I hope this will be a positive season for him."
