‘Cheaper than Vardy, He reminds me of Eduardo’ – Fans react to first goals from Lucas Perez
A majority of the Arsenal faithful appear to have been thoroughly impressed by the performance of Lucas Perez in Tuesday night’s League Cup victory over Nottingham Forest.
The Spaniard is still finding his feet in English football after choosing to leave Deportivo La Coruna to join the Gunners during the final week of the summer transfer window.
Ian Wright questioned the natural striker instincts of Perez following his debut against Southampton which saw him substituted after 62 minutes of action.
However, Arsenal’s new signing got off the mark for his new club on Tuesday as a pair of two very different goals from him in the second-half helped Arsene Wenger’s men secure a 4-0 win and a place in the next round of the League Cup.
Here were the reactions of some Gooners on social media…

In particular, L Perez's second goal against N Forest has displayed his high level of physicality necessary to thrive in the league. #AFC

Lucas Perez scores a Vardy goal for Arsenal. Cheaper, younger & no known history of racially abusing people.
