Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has been named the Budweiser Premier League Goal of the Month winner for last month.
The Frenchman finished a brilliant ball movement between Arsenal players starting from goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
The move was started by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale under pressure from the visitors’ attacking press, Arsenal had things under control as Ben White, Thomas Partey, Martin Odegaard and Takehiro Tomiyasu were all involved in a ball relationship as they found winger Bukayo Saka who went on to pick out Lacazette.
The former Lyon striker went on to finish in style.
The goal which was a typical Arsenal strike was one of the goals in their 3-0 comprehensive victory over Southampton.

“It was perfect movement from the back,” Lacazette told the club’s official website.
“From Aaron [Ramsdale] then we went through on the right side with one-touch [football] and then the cross from Bukayo [Saka] and I could score.
“It was really good, because we work this every week, this is the type of goal every team would like to score. Everyone was involved and it was really satisfying.
“It would go in my top five [of my favourite goals] because it was really a team goal and I believe that football is all about the team, so these types of goal are really amazing for me.” He added.
Lacazette and Arsenal won’t be playing this weekend in the Premier League as their North-london derby has been postponed due to Covid concerns but is expected to start during the week when they host Liverpool in the return fixture of the second Semifinal of the Carabao Cup.
