Arsenal’s fanbase have taken to social media in their droves this evening, to react to Alexandre Lacazette’s opener versus Sheffield United.
One eye on Slavia
Mikel Arteta’s men are of course currently locked in Premier League action at Bramall Lane.
The clash, in the grand scheme of things, means little when it comes to Arsenal’s campaign, with the Gunners having long blown their chance to secure Champions League football via a top-4 finish.
Instead, Arteta and co. will no doubt have one eye very much on matters in midweek.
This comes with the north Londoners set to make the trip to the Czech capital, for a crunch Europa League 2nd-leg showdown with Slavia Prague.
The opener between the sides on Thursday saw Arsenal throw away a crucial advantage at the death, to hand Slavia the advantage ahead of what could prove to be a season-defining return meeting.
Slavia Prague have an away goal!
In the closing seconds at the Emirates and Tomáš Holeš heads past Bernd Leno!

‘Shades of Wilshere vs Norwich’
Nevertheless, before visiting the Eden Arena, the north Londoners must navigate their way through proceedings in Sheffield this evening.
And, as things stand, Arsenal are well on their way towards securing a morale-boosting victory.
This comes with Alexandre Lacazette having notched the only goal of the evening thus far, in truly sumptuous fashion.
A one-touch exchange between Bukayo Saka, Dani Ceballos and Lacazette eventually resulted in the latter slotting beyond Aaron Ramsdale, to hand the visitors a deserved lead:
Look at that passing
An absolutely brilliant goal from Arsenal!

And, as outlined above, to say that the Gunners faithful enjoyed their side’s opener at Bramall Lane would be putting it lightly.
A host of Arsenal supporters have since taken to social media, to draw comparisons with a historically memorable team goal finished by Jack Wilshere during the 2013/14 season, under the watch of none other than Arsene Wenger…

That’s such a 2013/14 Wenger Arsenal goal. Tears in my eyes.
