Arsenal fans on Twitter as Emery denied them an Auba – Laca Anfield linkup

Arsenal fans on Twitter as Emery denied them an Auba – Laca Anfield linkup

It’s no secret that Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang love playing together and have brilliant chemistry both on and off the pitch. However, at times it seems Unai Emery is reluctant to use them together, and this was evident yesterday when the Spaniard hooked Auba for Laca instead of allowing them to play together.

There will be no surprises if it comes out that Lacazette and Emery don’t have a great relationship. The Frenchman has cut a frustrated figure this season when he’s been left on the bench and substituted early in games, and it makes sense when you consider that he was a £46.5 million signing yet he’s only managed 90 minutes eight times out of his 24 appearances this season.

The Gunners go mad for Aubameyang and Lacazette when they start together and get going, and the fact that Emery continually denies the fans that opportunity is something that doesn’t go down well with them, and yesterday it reached boiling point as even at 5-1 down and in the middle of their biggest humiliation since Arsene Wenger was at the club, Emery still refused to give the strikers time on the pitch together.

You can see what the Gunners made of Emery’s change here:

The Gunners are in a position where they need to react after their Anfield thrashing, and Emery would do well to give both Laca and Auba 90 minutes against Fulham on Tuesday
