    Alexandre Lacazette has become the seventh Arsenal player to score on their Premier League.

    Lacazette joined the Gunners from Lyon this summer for a club-record £52million and needed less than two minutes to introduce himself to the Emirates fans.

    The 25-year-old opened scoring in their dramatic 4-3 win , diverting Mohamed Elneny’s cross past Kasper Schmeichel.

    It was the Frenchman’s first shot on goal, meaning he scored on his debut, and as a result, joined an elite club of Gunners stars.

    There are only six other Arsenal players who have scored on their first appearance for the club: Kevin Campbell, Steve Bould, Fredrik Ljungberg, Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri and Thomas Vermaelen.
