Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

For the first time in two years, Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored from outside the 18-yard box.

The Gabonese have scored 76 six goals inside opponents box but that record ended yesterday against Cardiff City when he scored a screamer to help the Gunners get past the Bluebirds challenges.

The last time the Gabonese striker scored from outside the box was against Tottenham in a Champions League clash.

Though the player has scored many goals after then, all of them have come inside the box.

Alaxandre Lacazette sent an important message to Unai Emery

Yesterday’s goal wasn’t just his first goal outside the box, but it was equally his first goal of the season, having fire blank in the first three matches of the season.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker scored the beautiful goal after good work from Lacazette who unselfishly pass the ball to him.

Unai Emery was pleased with his team’s collective performance but pointed out, during his post-match conference that some individuals need to improve their performance after the break.

On Lacazette’s pairing with Aubameyang, the Gunners tactician lavish praises on both players for great understanding.

He said they helped the team get a maximum three points over their opponents as they were both on target during the encounter.

Up next for Emery and his players, after the international break, is Newcastle who were narrowly defeated by Chelsea two weeks ago
