Arsene Wenger cautious over comparing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Thierry Henry

11 Février 2018

Club-record signing Aubameyang shone on his Arsenal debut last weekend, and was on the score sheet during their 5-1 victory over Everton. The charismatic striker will attempt to recreate this kind of goalscoring form at Arsenal and with his explosive pace and clinical finishing, he will surely score lots of goals.

Then he escaped from Davinson Sanchez, clear on goal with only Hugo Lloris to beat but slid his effort wide.

While he was cautious about comparing Aubameyang to Henry, Wenger said the Gabon international had similar traits.

Maybe it is this 'main-man' mentality that would drive competitiveness in Lacazette to rival Aubameyang for his starting role.

"I think if you play football, it doesn't matter for which club, you have to achieve the maximum and you have to win titles because if you are playing just to play football it is better to stop playing it".

The creative midfielder started the season well at Old Trafford before falling out of favour at the club and despite this, he seems fairly proud with with how things went at the Manchester club. Wenger stated that Aubameyang has all the qualities to flourish at Arsenal but reckoned that it will be too early for him to chase Henry. This is not a team that is ready to handle the overawing presence of a plethora of attacking players.

"Auba is exactly the man Arsenal need".

But Arsenal have reason for optimism after new signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan put in an encouraging display against Everton last week, and the Gunners themselves boast a good record at the national stadium, The Evening Standard says in an article. A lot, he was very hard.

"It is an ambitious statement but it is a good one, the best goal scorer ever in Arsenal's history, so it doesn't mean he will be score as many goals but why not?"

"I am very happy to have him here and I think all the fans are happy to see him in an Arsenal shirt".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed the truth about his relationship with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

"People say he's a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful", Merson said in an episode of Sky One show A League Of Their Own.
