Alexandre Lacazette Reveals Story Behind His Strange Goal Celebration After Scoring Brace Against West Brom

Alexandre Lacazette has revealed the true meaning behind his strange goal celebration after he scored a brace for Arsenal on Monday.
The France international scored both of the Gunners's goal in the 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Emirates Stadium - a result which moved us into the top seven of the fledging Premier League standings.

The former Lyon striker has now taken his goalscoring at Arsenal to four strikes in seven appearances, and plenty of fans have speculated just what his surreal celebration means. The France international, however, told the club's official website what the story was behind why he celebrates like he does.
Lacazette said: “It was based on a bet with a friend of mine who really likes music that involves trumpets. It was a joke between the two of us. That’s how it all started, it was all a bet. I’ve just kept doing it and I really like it.

“The first time was in a friendly: Lyon against Sporting Lisbon, I believe, and then I did it in the league at Nancy.”
Lacazette headed home into an empty net in the 20th minute of the home clash with the Baggies, before firing home from the penalty spot midway through the second half to make sure of the points for Wenger's charges.

Those goals added to the strikes he scored against Leicester City, on the opening day, and against Bournemouth on 9th September to help Arsene Wenger maintain their four-match unbeaten streak.
We were soundly beaten by Liverpool 4-0 at Anfield before the first international break of the season, but have now just scored one goal in our last four games across all competitions - form which has resulted in three victories and one draw.

All of Lacazette's goals have come on home turf so far and Gunners fans will be hoping the marksman will soon replicate his striking form out on the road too.
