Aubameyang on Lacazette: The duo has been impressive for Arsenal ever since the arrival of Aubameyang in January last year.

While Aubameyang is the third-highest goalscorer in the Premier League at the moment with 14 goals, the Frenchman has contributed to 13 goals with five assists to his name.
And now, the Gabon-born striker has opened up on the partnership with Lacazette.
