Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has shared a video of Alex Lacazette training in the gym without the protective boot he sported yesterday evening after picking up an ankle knock in the Emirates Cup.
The France international had to be subbed off early in the first half on Sunday but did allay fears of a serious problem when he faced reporters on his way out of the ground.
Aubameyang shared a short clip on Instagram in which Laca and Shkodran Mustafi are seen doing an arm workout with those weird ‘battle rope’ things.

It remains to be seen whether Emery, who also said the injury wasn’t serious in his post-game press conference, takes the striker to France for Wednesday’s clash with Angers. If there is any doubt at all about his fitness, you’d imagine he’ll be rested.
Arsenal’s first game of the new Premier League season is against Newcastle in 14 days time.
