Mikel Arteta reveals new Arsenal captain contender amid u-turn on Kieran Tierney decision

The destination of the Arsenal captain's armband has once again been thrown into doubt after Alexandre Lacazette was revealed as the current holder of the armband following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's exit

Mikel Arteta appears to have thrown further doubt on the future of the Arsenal captaincy after his side’s 2-1 victory over Brentford at the weekend.

It was a good afternoon’s work for the Gunners who were dominant as they secured revenge over Thomas Frank ‘s side for their 2-0 defeat on the opening day of the season.

Alexandre Lacazette hammered home the extra joy Arsenal’s players had felt after the victory by referencing Ivan Toney‘s now infamous tweet after the game in August with a post of his own that read “nice kick about with the boys.”
