Lucas Perez reveals his delight at helping Arsenal reach the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday...
Lucas Perez has taken to social media to heap praise on his Arsenal team-mates after he helped to fire the Gunners into the fourth round of the FA Cup with victory at Preston North End on Saturday night.
Arsenal failed to click into gear in the first half at Deepdale and headed in 1-0 down at the break.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men improved significantly after half-time and drew level early in the second half thanks to Aaron Ramsey’s goal.
And the comeback was complete late on when Lucas Perez’s deft backheel found Olivier Giroud in the 90th minute, and the French strike duly fired home.
Lucas earned plenty of praise for his performance for the Gunners on Saturday night and the player himself was clearly thrilled to play his part in the win.
