Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette showed great promise together during our pre-season preparations. So can we expect to see the duo line-up together against Chelsea this weekend?
Aubameyang was chosen to lead the line against Manchester City last Sunday, but Unai Emery says he’s willing to experiment to find the strongest attacking system possible.
“The possibility to play Aubameyang and Lacazette is okay because we tried that in pre-season and also last year they played together,” said Emery.
“Each match is different, each match is a different possibility. Against Manchester City, the last 25, 30 minutes they played together. For me it’s about finding the good balance for all that we want in attacking moments and defensive moments.
“I want to look at every player together, how to get Aubameyang and Lacazette scoring more goals, whether as one or together.
“I want to give them chances in each match and maybe we need a lot of matches for chances for every player, but we started with pre-season and every player is playing for chances and minutes in all the competitions. I think every player will get chances to show us his performance for the team.”
