Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal Arsenal vs West Ham Emirates Stadium Game Week Unai Emery

Gunners striker who shone off the bench in Saturday win over West Ham says Unai Emery has no other player like him.Alexandre Lacazette is convinced he is a crucial player for Arsenal whether or not he starts matches — because nobody else at the club offers the team what he can.After being sent on on at halftime on Saturday and impressing as the Gunners turned a 1-0 deficit against visitors West Ham into a 3-1 victory, the France international striker said: “I knew I could help the team.

“What I do is different to everyone else. I just want to play and help my team all the time.“When you come off the bench you have to be ready for your team-mates, it is what I tried to do and obviously it helped us to get the win.”The win was the first under Unai Emery, who has taken over after almost 22 years of Arsene Wenger’s reign, following losses to Manchester City and Chelsea.“The manager just told me to play my game and said we will win if I play well,” revealed Lacazette.You can’t really compare the two coaches – they are their own men when it comes to football.“Even if the aim is still to play and hurt the opposition with the ball, there are some big differences.”
