French striker Alexandre Lacazette is Arsenal’s April Player of the Month.
With hours remaining before the club’s biggest game of the season against Villarreal, the Gunners have saluted Lacazette as the current best player at the football club.
“Congratulations to Alex Lacazette - our April Player of the Month!,” Arsenal’s post said.
“The French striker was in impressive form and claimed nearly two thirds of the votes cast in our official online poll.
“Lacazette caught the eye with a fine performance in our 3-0 victory at Sheffield United, scoring twice - including a potential goal of the season contender at the end of a flowing team move.
“The forward then went on to bag a brace in our Europa League quarter-final second leg against Slavia Prague in the Czech Republic.
“Laca received 60 per cent of the votes cast, with Nicolas Pepe in second and Bukayo Saka in third place,” the club added.
Meanwhile, this evening’s pivotal game is as tight as 1-0 after Villarreal won in Spain last week.
