Lacazette pleased with Premier League debut rollercoaster


Alexandre Lacazette has declared himself pleased with his Premier League and his first proper experience of English football.

The French international got off the mark inside 2 minutes, in what must be one of the quickest debut goals in the league, and played his part in what was an extraordinary win over Leicester.

It was his shot that was saved that brought about the corner that led to Olivier Giroud’s winner, and overall the 26 year old was happy with how it went.

““It was a rollercoaster ride but it went well,” he said.

“We let in some goals we could have avoided but we’ll work to ensure we don’t concede any more like that during the season. Fortunately we ended the game on a high.”

And as for his first taste of the Premier League, he continued, “Obviously I’m still getting used to the English game, the positives and negatives, shall we say, but I’m learning.

“It’s interesting. Let’s say the referee tends to let play continue… and you only really understand that when you experience it. Not that it’s a positive or a negative, it’s just the way the game is and you get used to it. It’s nice.

“It is different to the French league but I knew that already. It’s up to me to adapt.”
