Unai Emery believes he can make Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette even better goalscorers by using methods he’s previously employed with Kylian Mbappe, David Villa, Edinson Cavani and others.

The pair have 27 league goals between them this season, but Emery believes he can get even more out of them.

“Every striker has developed with me in the past,” Emery said ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Goodison Park on Sunday. “I am very happy now, but I am very, very demanding of them.

“Individual scoring targets are what’s best for the team. I say to them, ‘When I have one ball, in training, I imagine you’ll score’. I push them.

“Each striker has his qualities and characteristics, but there is one similarity – they score a lot of goals.

“But we need good passes, good crosses, to give them the best option.

“Aubameyang and Lacazette are playing both roles, sometimes one behind the other.”
