Alexandre Lacazette believes he and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have what it takes to form a strong strike partnership at Arsenal. Lacazette and Aubameyang both scored in Sunday’s 3-2 Premier League win at Cardiff to secure successive victories for new Gunners boss Unai Emery.
It was only the fourth time the pair have linked up together since Aubameyang arrived from Borussia Dortmund in January. But at least one of them has scored in those four games, contributing seven goals in all.
Lacazette is now hoping that they get to play together more often and believes they can provide the goals Arsenal need to be successful.
“It’s nice to play together because we compliment each other’s strengths,” Lacazette said after marking his first start of the season with an 81st-minute winner.
“He (Aubameyang) deserved to score because he has worked so hard since the start of the season. The Chelsea game was hard for him because he missed some chances, but it was nice to play well with him.
“The system was good, we worked on it all week. It was different, but good.”
