Arsenal strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette produced the perfect pre-north London derby entertainment for supporters by giving their own commentary to the recent 4-2 win over Tottenham.
The two forwards were on target the last time the clubs met at the Emirates on December 2 as Arsenal stole the bragging rights of north London.
Now, ahead of the two sides’ meeting in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday, Arsenal have decided to remind supporters of the bulldozing performance, only this time with a commentary twist.
Both are expected to be involved at the Emirates on Wednesday night with boss Unai Emery appearing keen to go with a strong line-up.
Should it pan out as it did in the Premier League, Aubameyang and Lacazette will have a big part to play in the latest instalment.
The video begins with Lacazette pointed out Aubameyang’s ‘fresh trim’ but they soon assume their character roles and got stuck into describing the chances.
Moments before Arsenal score the opener, Aubameyang is fouled on the left wing by Tottenham’s Serge Aurier and the two strikers are out of their commentary seats calling for Mike Dean to produce a red card – although it never materialises.
The free-kick is then whipped in and strikes the hand of a Tottenham defender, leading to a penalty which Aubameyang cooly slotted away.
‘Pfft, so easy for him, so easy!’ said Lacazette as he basks in the skills of his team-mate.
It remains unclear yet if one or both will start under the lights at the Emirates as Emery looks to get his second successive win over Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Both sides main focus is securing a top-four finish in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup represents an opportunity for younger players to be thrust into the side and handed an opportunity to impress.
But having been vital in putting Tottenham away first time round, Arsenal fans will hope the two strikers can show as much chemistry on the field as they do when side-by-side on commentary duty.
