Lacazette as good as Aubameyang playing lone striker role
Gary Robinson hails Laca's impact in a 2-1 away win vs Huddersfield, while Auba was absent due to an illness.
"The Frenchman has often played second fiddle to Aubameyang this season and whilst the Gabon frontman often looks better with Lacazette playing, it is still Aubameyang who is viewed as the premium striker.
"Lacazette showed on Saturday why Arsenal paid over £50 million for him and in the absence of Aubameyang, Lacazette played in the central role and his sharp runs and quick thinking were often too much for Huddersfield to deal with.

"Whilst his finish was simple enough the movement and thinking beforehand were a great example of what Huddersfield lack up front.
"Lacazette is now on double figures in the league and with the Europa League back on the horizon, the Frenchman should get enough football to show he is more than Aubameyang’s wingman."
