“We are very happy because the first match against a promoted team is always perilous. This is a very good week.
“Congratulations to [coach] Bruno [Genesio], for his talk has borne fruit. We are very happy and will enjoy tonight but we must keep our feet on the ground this season.”
Lacazette’s comments will come as a blow to Arsene Wenger who reiterated his desire to still sign players in the transfer window following a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool.

“It’s about identifying the players and getting the right availability.”
