It seems that the new position fits the French striker.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has claimed that Alexandre Lacazette has found a new position for himself after his side's 4-1 win over Rapid Vienna.

Lacazette played for his team in the Europa League at number 10 position and scored the game's first goal in the 10th minute. He also hit the bar later in the game. Pablo Mari scored the second goal, and Eddie Nketiah scored the third before the final whistle. Emile Smith-Rowe scored the fourth goal in the second half, and Koya Kitagawa scored the only goal for Rapid Vienna.

Arteta was impressed by his French striker's performance and claimed that he was able to find a new position for himself.

Spanish manager told reporters:

"He's played a good game in that position. It suits him. He's really good at linking play, he worked hard and scored a beautiful goal."

Lacazette was happy with his performance too and told BT Sport:

"It was amazing - we were so happy to see the fans today it really helped us during the game."

"Even in bad moments they pushed us to play good obviously we played well it was good football.

"We had two players [Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers] come back from injury, so we're really happy for them so it was a good night."
