Wenger praises two-goal Perez as Arsenal rolls Nottingham Forest
Lucas Perez has his first two Arsenal goals after striking twice in the Gunners’ 4-0 EFL Cup win over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.
The $22 million man arrived from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer transfer window, and showed a very deft touch to go with a bulldog run for his second goal.

The showing left manager Arsene Wenger quite impressed, with his only critique being that the left footer uses his left foot a lot.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Granit Xhaka also scored for Arsenal in the road win, with USMNT prospect Gedion Zelalem subbing on for the final 7 minutes.
Next up for the Gunners: a Saturday afternoon visit from Chelsea.
