Arsenal hero Jens Lehmann believes there’s more Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can do.
In five appearances against champions City, Man United, Tottenham and Chelsea, Aubameyang did not score once.
And former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann says he wants to see the forward prove how good he is by stepping it up in the big games.
“I always thought that in Germany he was a top player,” Lehmann said of the striker – who scored 141 times in 213 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.
“When you come to England the physicality is much higher and you need to show that you are a big player for big games, some players are big players for small games.
“Now, it’s another opportunity to show that.”
Lehmann, who was part of Arsenal’s Invincibles in the 2003-04 season, says he likes this combination.
“I think he [Aubameyang] likes to play centrally but when you have Lacazette as a great player for holding balls, for making them [the team] tight and getting other players to come forward – then you need to play him central and you can’t play the two of them central,” he added.
