ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE was left red faced after being left to hang by his team-mates…again.
After Xhaka opened the scoring, the Gunners players congregated together in celebration.
Lacazette went to join the group to get involved but was shunned when he tried to have a high-five with strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
With a big grin on his face, the forward stood with his hand in the air for a good five seconds before finally giving up and slapping Xhaka on the back of the head.
A fan uploaded a clip of the incident on Twitter alongside the caption: “Lacazette does it again!”
One fan commented: “I’m pretty sure that’s why Auba was hugging Xhaka for the second time. Auba and Laca are partners in crime.”
It is not the first time Lacazette has been left out by one of his team-mates.
During a pre-season win over Sydney FC last year, former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud celebrated his goal by hugging and high-fiving other players apart from Lacazette.
