A late Alexandre Lacazette goal confirmed the win for the Gunners after Bukayo Saka had put them ahead in the first half, to ensure the three points and keep their race for a European spot alive.
Here's a summary of the action:
Bukayo Saka 0-1 43'
For the goal, the young winger got to the ball on the edge of the box and fired in a first-time shot without any hesitation. The strike was excellent and it went inside the right post. He couldn't have done it any better.
Alexandre Lacazette 0-2 86'
The striker had just come on and this was a good introduction to the game.
For the goal, Lacazette took a short pass from Joseph Willock in his stride in the box, jinked inside his man and unleashed an unstoppable shot into the bottom left corner.
STAT: Aged 18 years, 303 days, Bukayo Saka is the second youngest English player to score a Premier League goal for Arsenal, after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (18y 173d v Blackburn in Feb 2012). #WOLARShttps://t.co/Zc6lUwDltZ— Futaa.com (@Futaacom) July 4, 2020
