Aubameyang's assessment of Arsenal's front three against Liverpool's trio 

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes his side has enough quality to rival Liverpool when the two sides meet at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. 

The Gunners were on the receiving end of a 5-1 hammering the last time they visited Anfield, but the Gabon international feels they have quality in their side going into the match. 

“As we've seen from last season, Liverpool plays with three upfront and they play very well. Why not us? I think we can do it," Aubameyang told Sky Sports.

“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.”

“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,

Auba has two goals to his name in the current campaign, with Lacazette having opened his account against Burnely. 

Pepe, who was signed from Lille in the summer transfer window is yet to get a goal, and has been used as a substitute in his first two appearances for the club. 

Coach Unai Emery indicated on Thursday that the Ivory Coast international might be in line for his first start at Anfield.
