Lacazette plays down Arsenal’s top four chances

Lacazette plays down Arsenal’s top four chances

Alexander Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice while Aaron Ramsey also got himself on the scoresheet.

Probably not the first time a footballer has used the popular caption and definitely won't be the last, but Gunners fans aren't complaining one bit as their beloved side look set to be challenging for the top-four at the very least.

The Gunners lie fourth on the table, level on points with London neighbours Chelsea and one point behind league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool.

The pair have clicked on and off the pitch, Aubameyang now having scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances - a better start to life at Arsenal than Thierry Henry.

Lacazette joined Arsenal last summer for a then-club record fee before that amount was eclipsed in January as fellow forward Aubameyang came in from Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal have even been mentioned as possible Premier League title challengers, although a return to the top four remains their priority after two seasons outside of the Champions League.

"It is good", Lacazette said of his relationship with Gabon worldwide Aubameyang.

Ramsey has been with the Gunners since arriving from Cardiff in 2008 but appears to be on his way out with his current deal expiring at the end of the season. Earlier this season he reportedly made it clear to German playmaker Mesut Ozil that he needs to work harder if he is to keep his place.

Since his move to the Emirates Stadium, Torreira has played 11 games in all competitions, providing two assists, with the defensive-minded player yet to score for his new club.

"The team spirit is better".

"Yesterday he came in with pain and he can not train yesterday or play today", Emery stated.

"We tried to win the game", he said.

"I must be anxious when we play bad and lose, I trust we play well and have more options to win the game".
