Alexandre Lacazette has explained why “brother” Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cannot be compared with Thierry Henry.
Aubameyang scored the 15th and 16th goals of his Arsenal career against Fulham, making his start at the club more successful than Henry’s.
The Frenchman netted just five goals in his first 23 games for the Gunners, before bursting into life in the second half of his first season and eventually becoming the club’s top goalscorer.
Aubameyang is 212 goals behind Henry’s overall record, but Lacazette has kindly explained why comparing the two is a nonsense.
“It is good, he is like my brother. We talk every day and we love working together.
“Today in front of the goal we scored two goals each, which is good.
“It is hard to compare with Thierry because he came was younger and Auba is at the top of his career. But I hope Auba scores as many goals to help us win something.
“The team spirit is good, of course when you win it is better. We are working well and we want to continue like this.
“To talk about the top four is early I think, we have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well. Just work as we did and we will see at the end of the season.”
