Emery thinks that “Lacazette and Aubameyang are perfect!”

Arsenal is trying to finish in top four places in the league and, at the same time, trying to win Europa League.

They will play against Everton latter today while they will face Napoli during mid-week.

After a good beginning, shabby middle, and now a strong finish, Arsenal is ‘hanging’ in 4th place in the league. They have a chance of going 3rd with a win against Everton.

One of the main reasons why Arsenal has managed to stay competitive, despite leaky defense, are two players. Two strikers. One is Aubameyang and the other is Lacazette. Together, they have managed to score almost half of Arsenal’s goals in the league this season.

An effective partnership, indeed.

As reported in Goal, Emery also spoke fondly about these two players and compared them to the strikers he had at other clubs.

“Aubameyang and Laca are perferect!”

“I had at Valencia, Villa and Morientes; Soldado and Aduriz. I had at Sevilla, Gameiro and Bacca. I had at Paris Saint-Germain, Cavani and Mbappe. Here I have Aubameyang and Laca. It’s perfect.

“Each striker has his qualities and characteristics but one is similar. They are strikers and score a lot of goals. All of them.

“We need a lot of good passes, good crosses, to give them the best chance to score in the box. We can be proud that both are with us.”

Obviously, Emery is proud that he has both strikers as Arsenal would struggle without them.

Arsenal would likely be stuck in the mid-table if there was no Auba and Laca at Arsenal. They represent the best striker partnership in the Premier League.

Will they be enough for Arsenal to finish in the top four position in the league? It’s difficult to say, but they will have their chance today to get Arsenal new three points.
