Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has insisted that he will look to score goals in key games where former strikers have failed to succeed.
The France international joined the Gunners from Lyon for a club-record £46m fee earlier this summer and has since opened his goal tally for the club.
Lacazette scored just 94 seconds into his league debut against Leicester City but was unfortunate to have his goal chalked off for offside in the 1-0 loss at Stoke City. The Frenchman has maintained a tally of over 20 goals in each of his last four seasons, and he is aiming to take this form forward by scoring in the crunch games, he told Sky Sports: “I’m going to score goals at key times in games where Arsenal may have struggled in previous seasons. I’m going to win us games.”
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has stressed that his compatriot is still adapting to the rigours of the Premier League, but he will soon get back to his old self, he said: He is still in an adaptation period to the team and to the league. He is a bit surprised by the intensity of it all in training and in the games. He will get there because he is brave and he is intelligent.”

Arsene Wenger says that he feels sorry for not having given 100% satisfaction to every supporter of Arsenal.
The fans staged a protest against the regime of Wenger, which has failed to yield a league title in the last decade. Even though there have been two FA Cup trophies during this period, it is not seen as a recognition of the club’s stature. Arsenal are primarily judged upon their ability to win major honours like the Premier League and challenge in the Champions League. However, both these aspects have not happened since 2003-04 and this has led to fans calling for his departure.
The protests inside the stadium were held at the 12th minute as a symbolic gesture that the club has now gone 12 seasons without winning the league title. Even as there was dissent amongst some supporters, there was praise for Wenger in various quarters of the stadium. Prior to the match, the Frenchman claimed that he committed to Arsenal during a difficult financial times even when there were offers from several other clubs. His commitment to stay was revealed as the reason behind banks offering the club almost £ 400 million in loan to construct the Emirates stadium, which has been a major source of revenue for the club in the last five years.
