Aubameyang excited by the new-look attack at Arsenal

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes the new attacking trio at the north London club can match the efforts of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane at Liverpool.

Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette contributed a combined 50 goals across all competitions for the Gunners last year and that attacking threat is expected to be enhanced with the club-record signing of Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe has already shown glimpses of his ability in a couple of substitute appearances and speaking to Sky Sports, Aubameyang has said that he is excited with the prospect of playing alongside the Ivorian and Lacazette.

"It is going to be crazy - everybody is excited. I am looking forward to it. As we've seen from last season, Liverpool play with three up front and they play very well. Why not us? I think we can do it. I see a lot of similarities," he told.

Arsenal have struggled on the road to Liverpool over the past few years and they have failed to come up with a single point during the previous three meetings at Anfield.

They face another tough challenge against Jurgen Klopp's men but will be optimistic about securing a positive result with the likes of Dani Ceballos, David Luiz and Pepe adding more quality with the ranks.
