PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEUYANG VS AYMERIC LAPORTE
Pierre-Emerick started off in a good form in his new club Arsenal where he scored a goal.The same form was also seen in his second game thus impressing the fans of Arsenal.
Laporte has however struggled to have an impact for his club this season.

With the silverware battle this weekend,the two will certainly push themselves to the limits.Aubamayeng two and a half year record in Europe has seen him score 70 goals in 71 games, a record that only Robert Lewandoski,Lionel Messi,Harry Kane and Luis Suarez have scored more in Europe’s top five teams with Aubamayeng goals per ratio being high.
Arsenal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make the passes,Laporte will definitely be troubled by Aubamayeng.
