Alan Shearer says Arsenal duo Aubameyang and Lacazette should ‘scream’ at team-mates

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette should be “screaming” at their Arsenal team-mates in the dressing room, according to Alan Shearer.

The Gunners were beaten for the third time this season away at Leicester on Saturday, piling the pressure on boss Unai Emery.

After Aubameyang saw his opener ruled out for offside, Jamie Vardy and James Maddison went on to score for the high-flying Foxes and compile Emery’s misery.

The north London club now sit below newly-promoted Sheffield United in sixth place and trail fourth-place Man City by eight points in the table.

And Shearer believes Aubameyang and Lacazette are not getting sufficient service upfront for Arsenal, insisting he would be fuming in their position.

“I’ll put myself in their position, Aubameyang and Lacazette,” he said.

“What the manager is asking them to do is play slightly wider and track the full-backs.

“I wouldn’t mind doing that on the proviso that when we get the ball then we’re going to create chances, we’re going to hit Leicester on the break and have neat, tidy passing.

“I don’t mind going backwards but give me something that I can go and feed off the other way.

“There was nothing. There was one effort from Lacazette in the first half where he should’ve scored.

“There was nothing being fed up to these guys to run in behind. I’d be screaming in the dressing room afterwards saying come on give me something to feed on.”

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has urged the club to sack Emery or risk losing Aubameyang and Lacazette next summer.

He posted on Twitter after the defeat at Leicester: “One shot on target tonight!! Two wins in 10 in the league.

“No definitive style or plan. Negative goal difference. No improvement in the defence. Not creating anything.

“Why would Lacazette or Aubameyang renew? Can’t blame them! We have to make the tough decision Arsenal! It’s not getting better!”

Emery, though, tried to remain positive after Arsenal’s latest setback.

“We need time and we need patience,” he said. “We changed a lot of players and we have young players.

“We know we are in a way with a very demanding, very ambitious in our target but we know we need time and patience.

“We are going to achieve with young players, with experienced players. We have had a lot of circumstances they didn’t help us to achieve the best performance, the best result. But with patience and being consistent we are going to do.”

“The patience is the next match against Southampton. The most important thing is being calm, being ambitious and demanding our self to work and stand up in our mentality and in our work.”
