We witnessed a beautiful goal from Lacazette; he always finds ways to score from really random positions. There’s no surprise that the assist came from Özil.
But something else caught my eye:

Bukayo Saka seems to be getting dribbling lessons from Alex Iwobi. It’s quite refreshing to see our young players play with so much confidence. Bukayo had this to say after his impressive performance:
It is a dream come true, ever since I joined the club at the age of eight I always dreamed of playing at the Emirates so for all the coaches and the fans to support me tonight was really good. – Arsenal
It was also nice to see Koscielny back, and I didn’t realise I missed his presence so much. Let’s hope that he gets stronger with every game he plays.
Apart from that though, we never really were able to convert our chances against Qarabag. We also had some selfish play among the younger players, most wanting to score like Emile Smith-Rowe. But that’s what you get when you play with youngsters.
Up next is our game against Southampton on Sunday. We hope to move up the table with an emphatic win because I’m getting tired of these 1-0 wins. I say this because the title chase is wide open and could be determined by the slightest of differences.
