Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette had the chance to impress together for Arsenal – and their bromance only went from strength to strength in the thrashing of Fulham on New Year’s Day.
Plenty of Arsenal fans have called for Unai Emery to find room in his starting XI for both Aubameyang and Lacazette in recent weeks, and the manager gave them what they want against Claudio Ranieri’s men at the Emirates.
And the Premier League’s favourite buddy cop duo responded to the selection by both getting themselves on the scoresheet as the Gunners triumphed 4-1.
After Lacazette bagged Arsenal’s second, the France international celebrated with a reserved handshake and head bow with Aubameyang.
And the strikers repeated the celebration when Aubameyang rounded off the scoring late on – even though Lacazette was off the pitch having been substituted by that point.
