Alexandre Lacazette took to Twitter to troll Brentford striker Ivan Toney after Arsenal’s victory over The Bees on Saturday.

On the opening day of the season, Brentford earned a shock win over Arsenal in their first Premier League game following promotion from the Championship.

Brentford striker Ivan Toney took the opportunity to rub the victory in Arsenal faces, tweeting that it was a “nice kick about with the boys”.

That tweet would have been particularly frustrating to Alexandre Lacazette, who was one of the players to miss the game due to a positive Covid-19 test.

On Saturday, the roles were reversed. Lacazette started in a 2-1 win for Arsenal over Brentford, whilst Toney could only watch on at home after he failed a late fitness test.

Lacazette made sure to get his revenge on Toney after the game.

Emile Smith Rowe also got in on the act, replying to Lacazette’s tweet:

It looks like the Arsenal boys got the last laugh this season, whilst Brentford have some work to do to avoid their current slide into a relegation battle.

Perhaps treating the Premier League like a kickabout wasn’t such a smart plan long-term.
