Gabon International Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes that Arsenal attack will be very dangerous and get more goals this season when he eventually starts partnering with the the duo of Alexandre Lacazette and new signing, Nicolas Pepe.
Aubameyang’s 58th-minute goal was enough to earn the Gunners an away win against Newcastle in their first match of the 2019/20 Premier League season on Sunday.
While Lacazette sat out the match at Goodison Park, Unai Emery featured Pepe in the last 19 minutes, a decision understood to be due to the two players’ fitness issue.
Aubameyang and Lacazette’s partnership yielded 35 Premier League goals for Arsenal last season. And Arsenal fans will be thrilled to see Pepe completing a terrific trinity by the time Emery starts featuring them is a three-man attacking force.
Aubameyang agrees that the new plan be be worth the wait and is confident that it will turn out well for the club
“I don’t want to compare it [to other strike partnerships I have been a part of] but it is going to be crazy,” said Aubameyang.
“Everybody is excited about that. We will have time to play together and we will see. I am looking forward to it.
“The next game we play at home [against Burnley on Saturday] and we will see what is the coach’s decision. It will be difficult for him [to fit us all in] but that’s the game. When you have a good team it is like that and you have to make choices.”
“We are happy because we know he [Pepe] can help us to reach our goals. So it is another weapon for us and that is very good. When I play as the striker I am happy but if the team needs help and I play wide, then I will do it.
“I have watched him [Pepe] on TV. I know how he plays and we have tried to connect with him in training. For the moment it is going very good.”
