Lacazette gives revealing insight into Aubameyang partnership

Date published: Monday 22nd October 2018 11:59

Alexandre Lacazette has given an insight into his relationship with fellow Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners forward has also admitted that he is not worried who finishes as the club’s top scorer this season, as long as they win something.

Lacazette and fellow frontman Aubameyang have shared 11 goals in total so far this campaign, helping Unai Emery’s men to nine successive wins in the process.

Both players head into Monday night’s clash with Leicester at The Emirates locked together on four Premier League goals apiece.

Lacazette, though, would be happy for the Gabon star to win the Golden Boot this season, if the Gunners can seal a return to the Champions League and claim some silverware along the way.

When asked, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, if there was any competition between the pair, he said: “Really, for me no.

“If Auba score 40 goals and we go to the Champions League and as well we win something, I will be happy because this season we just want to win something.

“There is no competition like who scores more goals on the weekend. Maybe in training because it is better to improve, but not on the weekend.”

Lacazette also believes that the pair have struck up a “natural” partnership, despite not always starting games together away from home.

He added: “It is natural, we just have fun, we laugh, but we work as well.

“OK, people can see that we smile together, we are a good partnership. But when we have to work, we work. We know when we can work and when we can laugh and we just enjoy laugh and football together.

“It is more natural. We work together and I know him since France, he knows me as well, so I know how he plays and it is more natural.”
