But replays revealed Lacazette’s scuffed effort was diverted into the net by keeper Jose Sa.

It means the striker is still without a goal since Boxing Day, and was told of the news in a post-match interview with Amazon Prime.

He said: “I knew it was the end of the game. Nico gave me a good ball and so I give the few energy I had left and with luck it went in.

“I’m a bit sad it’s not for me but we keep going and I am sure I will score.

“Of course I want to score but more important is to win, to help your teammates to be better.

“We had a difficult January and I think we are coming back better in February and we want to continue it until the end of the season.”

Arsenal were behind after ten minutes as Gabriel’s horror back pass put through Hwang Hee-chan, who opened the scoring.

Nicolas Pepe then levelled on 82 minutes before Lacazette helped put Arsenal a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United, with two games in hand.

Lacazette said: “To win this kind of game in the last seconds like this. We really wanted to win today, it’s important to be on top in the table.

“After conceding the first goal it was a hard game but we never give up and this is good for the team.”
