Player of the month

Lacazette is our January Player of the Month

After scoring three times in January, it's no surprise that Alex Lacazette has been named as our Player of the Month.

The France international kicked off the new year in fine style, scoring our second goal in our 4-1 victory over Fulham at Emirates Stadium.

Laca also played a starring role in our 2-0 victory against Chelsea, opening the scoring in the third minute with a superb finish at the near post.

The forward's final goal of the month came in our 2-0 victory against Cardiff, as he collected the ball on the touchline, held off two challenges and lashed a shot into the far corner.

Lacazette finished with 65 per cent of the votes cast, with Sead Kolasinac in second place and Aaron Ramsey in third.
