Lacazette and His Arsenal Colleagues Tweet Premier League About Marcos Rojo ‘Own Goal’

Lacazette and His Arsenal Colleagues Tweet Premier League About Marcos Rojo ‘Own Goal’

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette and some of his Gunners team-mates have contacted the Premier League imploring them to officially give the Frenchman his goal from last night’s clash with Manchester United.

It looked like the former Lyon man had bagged a potential winner at Old Trafford last night when he attempted to slot the ball past David de Gea in the second-half, only to be wedged between Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo.

The ball trickled over the line despite the best efforts of the Red Devils’ defence and it seemed as though Lacazette had his eighth goal of the campaign – only for the Premier League’s official Twitter account to reveal it’s been awarded as an own goal.

Well, it seems that news hasn’t gone down too well in the home dressing room at the Emirates, with the 27-year-old and several of his colleagues replying asking for the decision to be changed:

Do you think the goal belongs to Lacazette?
