Don't compare Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Thierry Henry, says Alexandre Lacazette

Don't compare Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Thierry Henry, says Alexandre Lacazette

Second half goals from Lacazette, Aubameyang, and Ramsey finished a 5 star performance from Arsenal with a 5-1 scoreline.

Probably not the first time a footballer has used the popular caption and definitely won't be the last, but Gunners fans aren't complaining one bit as their beloved side look set to be challenging for the top-four at the very least.

Aubmeyang, also a sub, scored twice, as did Alexandre Lacazette as the win moved Arsenal into fourth above Tottenham on goals scored, two points off the three way leaders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.

And Arsenal are two points behind, yeah?

Lacazette is relishing working alongside the Gabon global and reveals a close personal relationship off the field is helping them perform on it.

He has contributed to the winning run which has seen Arsenal challenge on all fronts, mere months after the end of Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign at the club.

And Lacazette continued: "The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better". How many of us really think through our pre-work routine in the morning for instance? "We scored many goals, we were compact, we won the game and the fans are happy as well, so it is ideal".

"We're not afraid to play anyone".

Mahrez has now missed five of his past eight Premier League penalties - one for City and four for his previous club Leicester City - and seems highly unlikely to be given another chance after blasting the ball over the bar in the 86th minute.

'It is hard to compare with Thierry because he came was younger and Auba is at the top of his career, ' Lacazette said.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side are the only Premier League team yet to keep a clean sheet this season - but the Whites boss is not about to park the bus in an attempt to turn things around.

"I must be anxious when we play bad and lose, I trust we play well and have more options to win the game".
