Striker Lacazette models the new Arsenal home kit in Puma’s promotional Twitter video
The video features players such as Alex Iwobi talking about playing football growing up
Iwobi adds: ‘Growing up I was playing in the cage and playing Power League with friends. They gave me the confidence to show what I can do and if I could do it against older kids then I could do it against anyone.’
The shirt includes a ‘Beat of the City’ emblem across the chest, shirt sleeves and the socks while alternating between lighter and darker red shades on the torso.
And in another departure from Arsenal’s 2017-18 strip, both the shirt sleeves and socks feature a shaded red band contrasting the white.
It is likely to be Puma’s last Arsenal kit with the club expected to change manufacturers for the 2019-20 season.

The 2018-19 Puma shirt is hung up on one of the nets at the Emirates Stadium
Puma have acted as Arsenal’s kit manufacturer since the 2014-15 season when the 20-year run with Nike ended.
Airline Fly Emirates will act as Arsenal’s shirt sponsors as they have done every year since the move from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium in 2006.
Players will be wearing the shirt under the watch of a new manager, expected to be Unai Emery, after Arsene Wenger departed this summer following 22 years in the job.
The Spaniard is to be confirmed as Wenger’s successor after a day of talks in London concluded with him agreeing to take over.
