Lacazette: Aubameyang more than just a goalscorer

Arsenal striker Alexander Lacazette has hailed teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saying the forward should be seen as more than just a goalscorer. 

Aubameyang is currently the joint-top scorer of the Premier League after netting a brace against Everton as Arsenal registered a 3-2 victory over the weekend. 

"I think people should talk more about Auba and what he is doing in the game because he is more than a goalscorer," he said as quoted by the club's official website. 
 
"He is working a lot for the team defensively and making space for the other striker - Eddie or me - and I think if we start to win more trophies, people will talk more about what he is doing for the team. He's one of the best or maybe he's been the best player this season for Arsenal. Obviously I hope he's going to stay."

The Frenchman has netted two goals in his last two matches and admits it was a relief after suffering a mini-drought in front of the goal. 

"There is pressure but it's more about me because I want to score and I want to help my team. Obviously I'm a striker but I'm not only here to score goals. I have to help the team to defend, to build up the game. For me, it's not the best thing when I'm not scoring, but [the staff and my team-mates] helped me through this," he said. 
 
"I really enjoyed my goal against Newcastle, because it was a long time that I didn't score. And obviously, the way my team-mates celebrated with me showed the mentality that we have now in the group. So it's only positive things about this group."
