Arsenal midfielder Iwobi: Why Lacazette goal so pleasing

Arsenal goalscorer Alex Iwobi hailed the strike of Alexandre Lacazette after their 2-1 win at Huddersfield.

Lacazette scored after a slick counter-attack that culminated in Henrikh Mkhitaryan finding Ainsley Maitland-Niles for a match-winning assist.

“We've been working a lot on transitioning when we get the ball, to counter-attack and attack with speed," Iwobi explained.

“So when the goal went in it was a great team move and I was also happy for Laca to get the goal as well.

“Ainsley did well today," added Iwobi. “He's an attacking threat. You can see that he can get up and down, he's got a lot of stamina. It'll do him a lot of good and hopefully he continues this run of form."
