Sky Sports presenter Geoff Shreeves has apologised to Arsenal striket Alexandre Lacazette telling him to be "steady with the language" after he answered a question on the performance of Petr Cech.

The French said: "Big big thanks because today he took a lot of balls so for the first time we have a clean sheet. Thanks Petr."

The Sky Sports man replied: "Steady with the language. I know English isn't your first so be careful with the language."

Lacazette appeared perplexed with Shreeves' response. He was referring to the number of saves Cech had made in the 2-0 victory over Everton.

The presenter admitted his error on Twitter.

He wrote: "Right let’s be clear. I didn’t hear clearly/understand what he said.

"@LacazetteAlex quite rightly looked blankly at me thinking “What is this fool on about?”

"In short, I b@llsed it up."
