There’s no getting away from the fact that Arsenal are a different beast at the Emirates. It seems that’s the case for their players as well.
Alexandre Lacazette has nine home league goals this season while Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has 11. The pair just love playing at home.
As a result of those goals, they’re now chasing an Arsenal record. Should Lacazette bag against Crystal Palace it will be just the second time two Arsenal players have scored ten goals at home in a season.
Thierry Henry and Robert Pires were the first to do it back in 2004/05. Lacazette and Aubameyang have some way to go until they’re as highly regarded as those two at Arsenal but equalling this record would help them on their way considerably.
