Giroud eclipses Lacazette as Arsenal wins in Sydney

Giroud eclipses Lacazette as Arsenal wins in Sydney

Thomas Lemar's potential move to Arsenal has dominated the thoughts of Gooners for quite a few weeks now.

Everton, West Ham, Marseille and AC Milan are all interested in Giroud who knows he must regularly this season or risk losing his place in the France squad for next summer's World Cup.

He didn't stop there; even once referring to his time at Arsenal in the past tense. Because for a centre-back he's pretty skillful'.

A lot of the pre-match talk was about Arsenal big money buy, and Lacazette didn't disappoint, scoring his goal just fifteen minutes into his debut.

The striker has fired 98 goals in 226 appearances for the north London club since his arrival from Montpellier in 2012.

Arsenal came closest to netting a fifth of the afternoon through a Mesut Ozil free kick, which was sent over the wall but came back off the frame of the goal, before Edward Nketiah struck the post with his shot on the spin late on. "We haven't come here for 40 years, so at least the players realise tonight what kind of support we have in Australia, and of course we are thankful for that".

After two decades - and two 5-1 floggings by Bayern Munich - the under-siege Wenger departed from the four-man backline he's favoured for almost the entirety of his tenure, implementing a three-man defence to defeat Middlesbrough in April.

Lacazette, along with seven others, were withdrawn by Arsene Wenger after 66 minutes, the club-record signing enduring a quiet game after a lively start. "We have to wish him all the best and to see if he will settle very well".

"They don't play many games in pre-season, so every one for them counts". Well, I know the Wanderers will. The Western Sydney Wanderers want to prove we deserve to be on this stage.
