Arsenal FC striker Alexandre Lacazette was pleased with his display in the 3-2 win against Cardiff FC on Sunday and now hopes to become a first team regular.

The Frenchman fired home the winning goal for Unai Emery’s men against Neil Warnock’s stoic Cardiff FC side to secure back-to-back league wins for the team.

Arsenal FC twice took the lead in the game, firstly through a powerful Shkodran Mustafi header in the first half, then just after the hour mark courtesy of a superb Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang effort.

Neil Warnock’s newly promoted team managed to peg their illustrious opposition back on both occasions, thanks to goals from Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward, but it was Lacazette who ultimately had the final say on proceedings.

The 27-year-old rifled home the winner from a tight angle and following the game he expressed his delight after securing Arsenal the three points.

“For me, it was important to start well. I wanted to prove to the coach that I can be in the first 11, I think I did that and I’m happy,” said Lacazette, speaking to Sky Sports.

Aubameyang and Lacazette started up front together for the first time this season on Sunday and their link-up play would have been encouraging to see for supporters.

Perhaps after the international break, Emery might consider starting them both regularly as Arsenal FC aim to climb back up the table in the early stages of the new Premier League campaign.
