Alexandre Lacazette continued his recent scoring spree with a double in Arsenal’s 4-0 win at West Brom, with the Gunners winning a third successive Premier League game.
Kieran Tierney (23) put the dominant visitors ahead with a superb solo goal – his first of the season. The impressive Bukayo Saka (28) doubled the lead shortly after as Arsenal showed off some sensational team play.
West Brom had their best spell either side of the break, but an error from Semi Ajayi allowed Arsenal to hit the Baggies with a devastating attack that was eventually finished by a fizzing Lacazette effort (60). The Frenchman added his second shortly after, turning home from close range (64).
