Alexandre Lacazette got Arsenal’s 6-0 friendly win against Charlton off to a flying start with a spectacular long-range strike.
David Luiz made a pinpoint pass from defence and academy graduate Ainsley Maitland-Niles headed the ball down into Lacazette’s path.
The Frenchman fired the ball into the back of the net with a lovely first-time finish from outside the box on the half-volley, the striker’s reaction was surprisingly muted after the wonderful effort.
Arsenal appear to have given into fans who demanded that the highlights from the encounter were posted, this footage should get Gooners through the weekend.
Lacazette’s superb strike can be seen below:
