Unai Emery says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal-scoring performance against Vorskla shows the striker is growing in confidence.
The Gabon international was charged with leading the Gunners attack on Thursday and took his tally for the season to three with a brace against the Ukrainians in the 4-2 win Europa League win.
“We have started playing with our style with Aubameyang,” said Emery ahead of Sunday’s game with Everton.
“He needs also confidence, but he needs to continue finding his best performance.
“I also have a lot of confidence in Lacazette, but also Welbeck and Nketiah. They are our strikers.
“I am going to work with them and give them my confidence and our work is to do one collective work to give them the best possibilities in the attacking moments to score.
“The players played like we want [against Vorskla] and we take more minutes and Sunday, I think, we have a big range of options to choose the best first 11. I think we also have players to help them after the start of the match.
“I am very happy to have these strikers for us.”
It’s likely that Alex Lacazette, rested on Thursday, will return to the starting lineup this weekend with Danny Welbeck and Eddie Nketiah fighting for starting positions when the Gunners take on Brentford in the Carabao Cup next Wednesday.
Last night, the latter bagged himself a brace as Freddie Ljungberg’s under-23s beat Liverpool 4-0 to go top of Premier League 2.
