Lacazette tops November Goal of the Month poll

Alex Lacazette’s fine finish against Liverpool has topped our November Goal of the Month poll.

Trailing 1-0 to Jurgen Klopp’s side at Emirates Stadium, the France striker latched on to an Alex iwobi pass in the area, twisted to buy himself some space and curled the ball into the far corner past Allison.

Lacazette’s strike - his second Goal of the Month win of the season - was the overwhelming winner with 71 per cent of the votes cast, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s effort against Wolves in second place.

Lacazette - This is the best that I've felt here

With five goals, three assists and a Player of the Month and Goal of the Month award to his name, it is clear that Alex Lacazette is enjoying his football.

The French striker has been in fabulous form, and ahead of Monday's Premier League encounter with Leicester City, he says this is the best he has felt since arriving in north London.

"Yes [is it] because even if I don't score in every game, in general I feel good and I am happy about my condition and my feeling in the team," Lacazette said.
 
"Unai Emery has had a big impact. He did a good job even if we lost the first two games, because after we have won nine games in a row and you can see what he wants us to do, how he wants us to play tactically, defensively. 

"Effort, he wants 100 per cent every day. He wants us to win, even in training. He wants quality as well, we know we have to play well to win. Sometimes not, but most of the time if we play well, we can win.

"In the dressing room everyone is happy about [our run of form] but we know if we did this it is because we worked a lot so we have to work hard again."

Lacazette is a big admirer of Leicester forward Jamie Vardy, and says we will have to watch his closely at Emirates Stadium.
 
"I like this guy because any balls in the box and can be a goal for him, for his team," he said. "He never gives up so I like this kind of striker. He has got quality and scores goals."
