Arsenal fans take to Twitter to forgive Lacazette for cheap red card

Arsenal fans take to Twitter to forgive Lacazette for cheap red card

Arsenal fans are often blinded by their bias towards a popular player of figure at the club, and it seems that has struck again. Last night, Alexandre Lacazette dropped a horrendous performance, missing a golden chance to score and receiving a late red card for an elbow, yet the Gunners are quick to brush it off and forgive the Frenchman.

Had it been Alex Iwobi or Henrikh Mkhitaryan who had missed Lacazette’s chance and then got sent off late in the game there would have been riots. The fans would be tearing into them on Twitter and claiming they’re not fit to wear the shirt. However, as it was Lacazette who let them down they’ve been very quick to forgive their goal-getter and move onto the next game.

That next game is against BATE Borisov again as they don’t play this weekend and they’ll have the task of turning around a 1-0 deficit back at The Emirates. The Gunners will still be firm favourotes for this one, although they’ll be going into the game without their French talisman, meaning that Unai Emery will likely have to call upon Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to lead the line and get them through.

The Gunners have been quick to give Lacazette a free pass for his actions and will just be hoping he doesn’t let them down like this again in the future.
