Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Lucas after the Spanish striker scored his first goals for the club in the EFL Cup third-round victory at Nottingham Forest.
This is what he had to say:
- Nottingham Forest 0-4 Arsenal - Report
- Wenger on the win, Xhaka and belief
- Vote for your #NFFCvAFC man of the match
on Lucas’ confidence now…Of course, a striker is always growing when he scores goals and I felt that he has shown tonight - I liked his second goal because it was not only technique but it was determination, to fight for the ball and finish, I liked as well the part he played in the goal of Oxlade-Chamberlain because it shows that he can combine with other people and that he is an intelligent player.
on Lucas’ second goal…He’s quick, he’s determined, he uses well his left foot - a bit too much for my taste, and not enough his right foot, but overall he’s like all left-footed players.
Look out for more Playbuzz polls soon!
