Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette was in top form as the Gunners came out 2-0 winners against Chelsea on Saturday.
The Frenchman fired high into the goal to open the scoring early in the first half and was a constant menace to his opponents all evening.
Fans on Twitter feel Lacazette should get more appreciation for his quality than he currently receives:
Best player we’ve got!

He just loves scoring on that near post lol. I’ve said it before I’ll say it again lacazettes finishing ability and passing ability are criminally underrated and are amongst the best in the league. That pass to Auba was insane, shame Auba Couldnt convert it

No better striker in the premier League at finding space in a crowded area

In terms of goals, he has been slightly overshadowed by Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. The French ace has ten goals in 28 appearances this season compared to his teammate’s 16.
Still, Lacazette could be described as somewhat of a big game player. As well as scoring against Chelsea, he scored in the 4-2 win over Spurs and the equalising goal in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool at the Emirates.
Manager Unai Emery may be wise to select him more often in big matches. He didn’t start the 5-1 defeat to the Reds at Anfield nor the 2-2 draw against Manchester United last month.
