Arteta on Lacazette 🗣
“He was captain because he’s one of our leaders and senior players. We haven’t been able to play him a lot. Last week I wanted to play him but we had some injuries through the game and we couldn’t use him. Today he scored a goal and he worked hard again.” pic.twitter.com/egV2iFv5en
