Charlie Nicholas has noticed that Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette go missing against the top sides in the league.

Arsenal face Manchester City in their next Premier League match. The Gunners have managed to find back their rhythm in the last couple of games but will struggle against Pep Guardiola’s men if they don’t up their game.

As reported by Metro, Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas has been critical of his former team. Charlie Nicholas feels that forwards Aubameyang and Lacazette are not deadly enough against the best teams of the lot.

The Scot also told that he is not expecting Arsenal to turn the game in their favor as they have equally struggling backline.

“We can guarantee goals in this one [against Man City]. I am going to go for a high scoreline here,” Charlie Nicholas told.

“Man City posted an emphatic win midweek but have major problems at the back. The Arsenal strikers looked as though they were more up for it and are scoring.

“Bukayo Saka played his part in the draw at Standard Liege, as did Gabriel Martinelli off the bench. We have some real promising youngsters.

“These are the games that they haven’t got a result in and I am not expecting one here.

“Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sometimes do not turn up in these games, if they get picked that is.”
