Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to demand that striker Alexandre Lacazette should start their next game after the Frenchman came off the bench to good effect in the 3-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.
The 27-year-old has made a single start for the Gunners so far this season, with new head coach Unai Emery preferring Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as the man to lead the line.
But Lacazette showed his capabilities on Saturday by coming off the bench at half-time and improving Arsenal's attacking prowess at Emirates Stadium. The forward set up the Gunners' second goal as the north London side gained their first win under their new manager.
His excellent performance in the second-half on Saturday prompted many Arsenal fans to appeal to Emery to start Lacazette from the off in their next Premier League game.
Dear Arsenal,— Lacazest (@Lacazest) August 25, 2018
Don’t start Lacazette on the bench again. He’s a absolute baller and needs to start every single game in order for us to win games.
Arsenal have improved every time Emery brings on Lacazette & Torreira, he has to start them. Yes West Ham are having a bad start to the campaign but today a positive step in the new Arsenal era. As I said after first game, it will take time.— Kyle Martino (@kylemartino) August 25, 2018
