​Arsenal striker Lacazette sends Willock message after Newcastle winner

Newcastle United loan star Joe Willock received a message from Arsenal teammate Alexandre Lacazette after his weekend heroics.

Willock is on loan with the Magpies until the end of the season from Arsenal, and helped them to a 3-2 win over West Ham United at the weekend.

Newcastle were 2-0 up in the game, but were pegged back to 2-2 by the Hammers, before Willock scored the winner off the bench.

The 21-year-old celebrated with his trademark trumpet salute, and it got the attention of the official Arsenal twitter account.

Lacazette replied to the club's tweet about Willock, saying "my bro" along with heart and trumpet emojis.
