Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, believes his budding partnership with Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe can be as productive, as Liverpool’s fearsome front line.
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have become one of the most consistent and devastating attacking tridents in world football.
The Gunners will, however, arrive on Merseyside posing plenty of threat themselves, with £72million club-record signing Pepe in the squad.
“As we’ve seen from last season, Liverpool play with three up front and they play very well. Why not us? I think we can do it.
“It will be a tough game against them. They are great players. They always try to go forward and try to get goals and assist each other. They are one of the best trios in the world,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports.
The Gabon international added on Arsenal’s crop of frontmen and comparisons to Liverpool’s: “I see a lot of similarities.
“Pepe and me, we are quick players like Mane and Salah, while Laca is a player who can keep the ball and is really good with his feet like Firmino. So yes, we can say we are close enough.”
