Lacazette takes centre stage away from history boy Barry

By Staff Reporter

Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette was the party pooper on Gareth Barry's big night. The West Brom ace made Premier League history at The Emirates as he surpassed Ryan Giggs' record number of appearances and was given the honour of captaining the Baggies in what was his 633rd display in England's top flight.

But he was upstaged by Lacazette, whose double gave Arsenal a 2-0 victory, which moves Arsene Wenger's Gunners up to seventh in the league.

Barry, 36, has enjoyed spells in the Premier League with Aston Villa, where he made his debut in 1998, Manchester City, Everton and now West Brom. He also won 53 England caps during a 12-year spell.
