Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette was forced off with tiredness during Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Lacazette was given his first Premier League start of the season against Villa after coming off the bench to score a late equaliser in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The 30-year-old won a penalty shortly before half-time following a tackle from Villa defender Matt Targett.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s subsequent spot-kick was saved by former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, but the Gabon international followed up to double the hosts advantage.

However, Lacazette fell to the floor clutching his legs in the 68th minute and was replaced by Martin Odegaard shortly after.

Speaking after the match, Arteta said: ‘He worked really hard, he hasn’t played many minutes, he’s not played any internationals and he’s lacking a little bit of that resilience to finish the games,’ he said.

‘But it doesn’t matter, the time he was on the pitch he was terrific.’

Goals from Thomas Partey, Aubameyang and Emile Smith Rowe were enough to give the Gunners their first win in three top flight matches.

Villa scored a late consolation goal through a fine Jacob Ramsey strike, but the hosts did enough to hold on to what was a deserved three points.

The win lifts Arsenal into the top half of the Premier League table and level on points with Manchester United, who host Liverpool on Sunday.
