Alexandre Lacazette became the first Arsenal player to score in his first three home league games since 1988.
The French striker has taken to his new home, and after his brace against West Brom on Monday night, he’s now scored in each of our home league games this season.
In fact, according to Opta, he’s the first Arsenal player to do this since Brian Marwood in 1988.

The 26-year-old opened his Arsenal account just two minutes into the opening day win over Leicester, and scored a beauty in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth.
His brace on Monday wasn’t the prettiest around. His first was a tap-in after he latched onto an Alexis free-kick to rebounded off the bar, while his second was a well-struck penalty into the bottom corner.
So far, Lacazette is proving to be the clinical striker we all hoped for. He managed four shots against West Brom and scored two of them. Against Bournemouth, he got one goal from two shots, and against Leicester he got one goal from three shots.
Away from home, he’s yet to score, though he can consider himself unfortunate. His strike in the 1-0 defeat at Stoke could have easily stood on another day, while the miss from close-range in the 0-0 draw at Chelsea has been the only glaring miss of his short Arsenal career.
