ARSENAL fans were left open-mouthed as Alexandre Lacazette produced one of the misses of the season against Burnley.
The France striker was provided with a golden opportunity to add to his pitiful tally of three league goals this season as the Gunners searched for a breakthrough at the Emirates.

But the 30-year-old could only spoon wide with the goal-mouth and the chance of a 1-0 lead begging.
Home fans were left unimpressed and took to social media to vent their frustration after seeing their side held to a goalless draw.
User PaddyArsenal wrote on Twitter: “£56m Lacazette can’t put the ball in an empty net but let’s give him a new contract!”
Fan Lloyd Tennant wrote: “Terrible result, Lacazette’s miss was a shocker… a top striker and a midfielder is a must before the end of the window.”
Chiddyafc fumed: “Lacazette is a bottom 5 striker in the PL. I’m absolutely disgusted.”
And AFC_Carys wrote: “I wouldn’t wish Alexandre Lacazette on my worst enemy, we should be winning…”
The result leaves Arsenal sixth in the Premier League table – albeit with two games in hand over West Ham above them.
Boss Mikel Arteta is desperate for goals, with his side failing to score since the 2-1 defeat by leaders Manchester City on New Year’s Day.
It marks the first time they have failed to score in four consecutive matches in all competitions since December 2005.
