Arsenal key striker happy with Unai Emery’s tactical decisions

Alexandre Lacazette thinks his friendship with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will help Arsenal after he fired the Gunners to victory at Cardiff City on Sunday.

Alexandre Lacazette sent a rasping strike past Neil Etheridge to seal a 3-2 win nine minutes from time, having earlier laid on a beautiful goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the duo rewarded head coach Unai Emery’s decision to start them in tandem for the first time this season.

Aubameyang’s club-record arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January consigned Lacazette to second choice the last term.

“If we are well off the pitch it is easier for us to play on the pitch,” Lacazette told Sky Sports after a man-of-the-match display.

“For me, it was important to start well. I wanted to prove to the coach that I can be in the first 11. I think I did that and I’m happy.”

“We wanted to take full advantage of the opportunity we had today,” contract rebel Aaron Ramsey told Sky Sports, having twice seen Cardiff equalise.

“We had a difficult start against Man City and Chelsea, but we’ve bounced back well. The crowd here are superb, and we did well to overcome that.”
