The Premier League have decided that Alexandre Lacazette’s goal was actually an own goal, chalking off the strike from the forward’s tally for the season.

They were quick to tweet their decision after the final whistle:

And Lacazette replied:

So whose goal was it?

Lacazette can feel rightly aggrieved at the goal being given to Rojo, especially after his strike that was ruled out at Stoke.

Twitter very quickly showed that Lacazette had indeed got the final touch or, if he hadn’t, it was so hard to tell there is no way they should have given it as an OG.

Arsenal fans were quick to recall the Harry Kane hilarity when the Tottenham striker claimed a goal he didn’t even touch yet the Premier League still gave it to him.

The goal should have been Lacazette’s eighth of the season in the league (9th in all comps), taking him to joint-third place in this season’s Golden Boot race, one behind Harry Kane and two being Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

As it stands, he is currently joint-seventh.
