Alexandre Lacazette jokes about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang partnership

WATCH Aubameyang finishes off slick Arsenal counter

Everton meet Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend as they look to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to West Ham.

His final seasons were characterised by him becoming an impact substitute, with first-team opportunities few and far between, adopting this new role naturally had a psychological impact on the 47-time capped England worldwide.

Lucas Torreira was handed his first start since joining in the summer but came off before the hour mark and sat on the bench icing his knee.

However, while they've scored 10 goals in five Premier League games so far this season, they've conceded nine, and so he certainly has to find a better balance in his team to ensure that they become more hard to break down.

Both teams play a very similar style and are at a pretty similar level.

The Germany global has been sparingly used by Emery following his arrival at the club, with the experienced Petr Cech establishing himself as the new boss' first-choice goalkeeper.

It was a well-timed display from Cech after the former Chelsea star was replaced by pre-season signing Bernd Leno for Thursday's Europa League win over Vorskla Poltava.

The quick-fire goals knocked the stuffing out of Everton, who mustered very little in response, with Arsenal seeing out the a fifth win in a row in all competitions that sees them climb to sixth, while Everton remain without a win at Arsenal in 22 years.

"I'm delighted with the performance and the clean sheet".




To give the Spaniard his due, Emery's English is vastly improved since his arrival in May and he now seems able to express himself with clarity and fluency. I had a lot to do today and I had to help the team stay in the game.

"Scoring over 100 goals for Arsenal is a great achievement for me personally, and then just the last year-and-a-half was tough, I can't lie".

Both teams returned to the pitch for the second half of the meeting but it was the hosts that drew the first blood through Alexandre Lacazette. "We conceded two or three important chances", he said.

And Aubameyang revealed the key to their formidable partnership, saying they have always been good friends since his arrival back in January.

It was a comprehensive win in the end and one that encapsulated what Arsenal can do under Unai Emery.

Richarlison returned for Everton after a ban, but could not find a way past Petr Cech (Nick Potts/PA).

"The result is disappointing for us".

"I think my performances in training are good".

MF Theo Walcott, 6 - Hassled Arsenal defenders into mistakes, frequently retrieving the ball deep in the opposing half, but there was a distinct lack of production from a player capable of much better in the final third.
