Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that he sees similarities between the potential Arsenal front three, and the Liverpool one which helped fire the Mugsmashers to Champions League glory last season.
The striker was speaking ahead of the game at Anfield on Saturday, and responded to an oft-made suggestion that he, along with Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe, could replicate the efficacy of their counterparts.
“As we’ve seen from last season, Liverpool play with three up front and they play very well, he told Sky Sports.
“Why not us? I think we can do it. 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.
“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.”
Arsenal go to Anfield looking for a much improved performance from last season when, despite taking the lead through Ainsley Maitland-Niles, ended up on the wrong end of a 5-1 scoreline.
