Ex-England international praises Emery for fitting two star strikers into the squad
- Former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher believes it's usually hard for managers to find the way to have two good centre forwards play together
- The ex-footballer says Unai Emery copes well with the matter as far as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are concerned
Unai Emery did a great job adjusting his attackers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to play together, claims former Reds defender and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher.
Both strikers started against Everton on Sunday afternoon at Emirates and both scored in the second half, securing the 2-0 win over the Toffies. Lacazette has been on target twice in his his last three Premier League appearances, Aubameyang has scored four times in his last four games in all competitions.
Didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon but I really have hope now that @LacazetteAlex and @Aubameyang7 can forge a traditional partnership on the levels of Yorke & Cole. The way they seem to pattern in & off the pitch looks promising #Gunners #Arsenal— Cran Dan (@CranDan1) September 23, 2018
"Sometimes it’s a problem for teams when they have two top centre forwards. With two £50-£60m players how do you fit them both into the team? The only answer is that one of them has to play wide or one of them has to sit on the bench. Very rarely do you see a real 4-4-2 certainly with the top sides," said Carragher.
"[Emery] has found a way of getting them into the team and they are both scoring goals which bodes well for the future," the ex-footballer added.
