Arsenal boss Unai Emery delighted with attacking options

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is delighted with his attacking options.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both struck for the 2-1 defeat to Burnley.

Emery said, "The structure of playing in their game plan is very strong and we needed to adapt to that. Afterwards we needed to impose our capacity, our quality, our skills, our structure also offensively and defensively. I think we did that.

"But for example today, if we can take off the result, I think we can do better. After, the goals of Lacazette and Aubameyang is amazing. And Pepe's impact is very good. Forty-five minutes today, he has been with us only two weeks and he needs to fit more.

"I spoke with him yesterday about how he is feeling every day with us, how he is feeling before the match, and he is feeling progressively better, but he needs more. Today, I think 45 minutes was perfect for him."
