Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is confident Arsenal have an attack that can match Liverpool FC’s firepower following Nicolas Pepe’s move to the Gunners.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery signed Pepe in a club record £72m deal from Ligue 1 side Lille in the summer transfer window to bolster his attacking options.

Pepe is still waiting to make his full Arsenal debut following substitute appearances in their victories over Newcastle United and Burnley.

Aubameyang and Lacazette have both got on the score-sheet in the Premier League this term, with the Gabon striker netting in successive league games.

Arsenal will come up against Liverpool FC’s famous front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Anfield on Saturday evening.

Salah, Mane and Firmino have proven a handful for most Premier League teams over the past two seasons.

But Arsenal striker Aubameyang believes Arsenal have the firepower to match Liverpool FC’s heralded attack.

“It is going to be crazy – everybody is excited,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports, as quoted by Metro. “I am looking forward to it.

“Hopefully, yes [we can hit it off straight away]. I think we can do it.

“First of all, he [Pepe] speaks French so it will be easy for him to settle in and play with us. He only started training with us a few weeks ago but it’s good to have him with us. He’s started well.

“Last season he was amazing. He’ll bring us speed and excellent finishing, and that’s good for us.

“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.

“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.”

Liverpool FC are sitting at the top of the Premier League table ahead of Arsenal thanks to their superior goal difference.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 under Arsene Wenger, when the north London side went the season unbeaten.

Liverpool FC, on the other hand, have never won the Premier League crown despite finishing in second place in 2002, 2009, 2014 and 2018.
