Me, Laca and Pepe are like Mo, Firmino and Mane - Aubameyang

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is really looking forward to the game against Liverpool this week and has compared Arsenal attack with Liverpool's front three.

Aubameyang is really excited about the signing of Nicolas Pepe and the Gabon international has revealed he is looking forward to playing with him.

The game against Liverpool will be the first big test for Arsenal this season and many fans are already looking forward to seeing their new-look front three starting the game.

Speaking with Skysport, Aubameyang  admitted it is going to be crazy when he, Lacazette and Pepe play together and also compared there style of attack with Liverpool's front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino.

'It is going to be crazy - everybody is excited,' He said. 'I am looking forward to it.'

'Hopefully, yes [we can hit it off straight away]. I think we can do it.'

'First of all, he [Pepe] speaks French so it will be easy for him to settle in and play with us. He only started training with us a few weeks agao but it's good to have him with us. He's started well.'

'Last season he was amazing. He'll bring us speed and excellent finishing, and that's good for us.'

'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.'

'It will be a tough game against them. They are great players. They always try to go forward and try to get goals and assist each other. They are one of the best trios in the world.'

'I see a lot of similarities. Pepe and me, we are quick players like Mane and Salah, while Laca is a player who can keep the ball and is really good with his feet like Firmino.'

'So yes, we can say we are close enough.'
