The Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is excited by the prospect of having Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette back in the fold.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made his first appearance of the season as a substitute against Chelsea at the weekend,
while Alexandre Lacazette is yet to play; both forwards tested positive for Covid;
Both are expected to be involved as Arsenal chase their first win of the campaign in the,
Carabao Cup against West Brom on Wednesday, and Arteta knows the value they bring.
What Was Said?
“That’s really good news because we really need them,” he said. “We know that a big part of what we want to do,
as I’ve mentioned before, is going to be determined in the boxes and these are the two players that have the biggest goal threat in the team.
“They are both so important to us as they are able to put that ball in the net.
We need them firing, we need them at their best and the team has to help them to deliver that.
“I think we sometimes get really carried away because of the youth,
the quality and the talent and the potential that we have through the squad,
but, the ones that are going to determine our success and who have to lead our success are the senior players.
