Alexandre Lacazette has had plenty to celebrate this season.

In eight appearances for Arsenal this campaign, the Frenchman has found the back of the net three times – with all of his strikes coming in the Premier League.

As has become customary every time the former Lyon hitman finds the back of the net, he's treated Gunners fans around the world to unique and entertaining celebrations.

And he's also treated the Emirates faithful to some intriguing celebrations whenever his team-mates have found the back of the net.

Over the last few months, eagle-eyed Gunners supporters have noticed the France international copies the celebrations of his team-mates when they wheel away in delight.

Lacazette continued that trend this past weekend when Gunners skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrated scoring Arsenal's winner against Manchester United Old Trafford.

As Aubameyang began to bust a groove, Lacazette immediately began throwing out the same dance moves.

Lacezette's actions didn't go unnoticed by Arsenal supporters, one of whom tweeted: "When you can't score goals but want to celebrate."

Another said: "This guy knows how to have fun."

Lacazette isn't the only top-flight player to mimick their team-mates' celebrations.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane has copied his colleagues' celebrations plenty of times down the years, so much so he was asked to explain himself during an interview with Copa90.

"The fans deserve to know the truth,' the Senegal international said. "[Roberto] Firmino copies me, not me copying him!

"The kick was me. We try it in training. He scored and I was behind him, and he did it.

"The dance with Philippe [Coutinho] and Bobby was mine too!"

Lacazette and his Arsenal team-mates will be back in action on Thursday evening, welcoming Norwegian side FC Molde to the Emirates for their third Europa League Group
