Henry: Why not play Aubameyang and Lacazette together?

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has urged Arsene Wenger to play a front two to fully utilise double strike threat Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The former Dortmund frontman completed his £57.5m move to the Emirates on deadline day, agreeing a deal worth £180,000-a-week.

However, at this stage it remains to be seen how Wenger will actually fit the Gabon star and Lacazette in the same team, as Aubameyang prepares for his Gunners debut against Everton on Saturday.

Henry though sees no reason why Wenger cannot revert to playing two strikers, as he did during the Frenchman’s time at the club.

“In my day we played a rigid, flat 4-4-2 and that was it. I don’t think Arsene will go back to that but why not?” he said on Sky Sports.

“Sometimes when Giroud came on as a sub, Lacazette moved out to play on the right or left. I don’t think he’ll do it at the beginning of a game but why not going back to two up front? I don’t know if he’ll do it but why not.

“The only thing I’m thinking is we always talk about supporting cast and it’s better to have two strikers and three and four guys that can help, but where does Lacazette fit into that?

“He was like the next best thing and came with a big transfer fee like Aubameyang too, so hopefully they can play at times together up front.”
