Auba - I knew I had to make an impact

Aubameyang celebrates against Fulham

For the first time in Premier League history, two substitutes both scored and claimed assists as we beat Fulham 5-1 on Sunday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was one of those men, and after the game him and Alex Lacazette discussed the performance and their respective goalscoring feats.

on whether it was an almost perfect game…
AL: It was hard. It was a bit hard at the start but we scored many goals, we were compact and we won, so it’s the perfect thing.

on making a difference off the bench…
PEA: Yes, we did! I think we played very well and we knew that Fulham play good football and they play a lot on the counter, but I think the team played well. I came in and I knew I had to make the difference and I did it, so it’s good!

on the danger of giving Auba and Laca chances inside the box…
AL: We won today because we were efficient and we knew there would be a lot of chances before the game. Auba came on and scored some goals so he did it and everyone is happy!

on how far this run can go…
PEA: I think we have to keep this mentality. We have a great team spirit and as you can see on the pitch we’re playing well in this moment so we will try to keep our focus and continue winning games!

on whether Ramsey scored the best goal of the game…
AL: The best thing is that we scored!
