Former Manchester United and Everton defender Phil Neville believes Unai Emery should go with the combination of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette when Arsenal face Newcastle United on the road this weekend. Emery had been hesitant to play both strikers from the starting lineup during the first three games of the season before the duo combined together for the away triumph at Cardiff City.
During that game, Lacazette marked his maiden start of the campaign with a goal and an assist and Neville has advised Emery to stick with the Frenchman upfront against the Magpies, he said: “They score more goals, they have better movement. Defenders don't like playing against him [Lacazette] because of his little sharp, darting movements. Arsenal are a better side with him. They look better going forward.It's just a question of how long Aubameyang can sacrifice himself or be happy on the left-hand side.”
