Goal… and another!

While Arsenal’s season hasn’t gone the way fans would have wanted, the club has acquired two top-class strikers who, apparently, both had the same idea against Stoke last weekend.

Alexandre Lacazette joined the club in the summer before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did the same in January, and now the two are copying one another from the penalty spot.

After Aubameyang had scored a penalty earlier in the 3-0 win against the Potters, he kindly gave Lacazette the next one, which he tucked away in alarmingly similar fashion.

Ball low to goalkeeper’s left, rolling up the back of the net, Jack Butland going the wrong way twice. The only difference is the celebrations, which for 1-0 and 3-0 respectively is understandable.

Fans will hope the two match each other goal for goal next season, too.
