Alexandre Lacazette sends cheeky Instagram message after Arsenal’s dramatic win over Wolves

The Frenchman was a key figure of Arsenal’s late winner against Wolves on Thursday and could not resist letting the moment run away with him

Alexandre Lacazette was at the heart of Arsenal’s celebrations as the Gunners secured a dramatic late win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday.

The Frenchman proved to be the match-winner for Mikel Arteta ’s men at the Emirates Stadium – albeit his powerful drive taking the final touch off of Wolves stopper Jose Sa.

The strike, and indeed the victory, represented a huge boost to Arsenal and their hopes of returning to the Champions League as they edged out a direct rival for a European place.

It was also the Gunners’ second win over Bruno Lage’s men this month having also squeezed past them 1-0 at Molineux only weeks ago.

With Lacazette finding the net in practically the final throes of the game, celebrations were indeed a sight to behold – an intriguing turn of events considering Ruben Neves ’ complaints at Arsenal’s behaviour in the Black Country.

However, no such verdict was forthcoming this time around and Lacazette was sure to fire a dig at the Portuguese midfielder following the final whistle.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: “We believed until the last second! So proud of my team, the atmosphere was unreal tonight!!

“How’s that for a celebration”

Lacazette, now 30, was also pictured getting fully involved in post-match celebrations with his side.

After referee Martin Atkinson had brought the game to a close, he was in a jubilant mood and elected to embrace a number of teammates including Eddie Nketiah, Aaron Ramsdale and Cedric Soares.

Gunners’ boss Mikel Arteta was also the grateful recipient of a Lacazette hug, with the Spaniard having seen his striker secure what could be a vital three points, despite seemingly missing out on the goal.
