Alexandre Lacazette says he’s not worried about the record he’s broken for the Gunners. He says he’s more pleased that Arsenal have performed so well since the end of August.

When Lacazette scored his first of the night against West Bromwich Albion on Monday, it made him the first Arsenal player to score in their first three home Premier League matches.

The last time anyone achieved a similar feat for the Gunners was when Brian Marwood scored in his first three home games in 1988, but that was before the inception of the Premier League.

He was asked about the record after the match, and responded: “I was told about the record. It is no big deal. It is not the kind of record I am looking for. I am not especially looking for records,” reports the Daily Star.

“I am looking for stability with the team and this evening was better and better. We won with a clean sheet so all the better for everyone. Everything is not perfect but we had possession, we did not concede. We scored. Even if I think we can do better, it is good already.

“We are unbeaten in September. We have reorganised ourselves defensively and everyone is working together and that is how you can see the difference.”

Arsenal suffered from defensive mistakes repeatedly at the start of the season, but in September have only conceded once in five games. The Gunners were realistically a bit lucky to keep the Baggies out on Monday, given the penalty not awarded, the open goal miss and Rodriguez hitting the post – all three of which happened in a five-second period.

But to an extent, you earn your luck, and the Gunners appear to be a lot more solid than thy were against Liverpool or Leicester, in my opinion. It’s good see see Lacazette freely scoring again, and hopefully he will start to do the same away from home.
