Ex-Chelsea and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has advised Arsenal boss, Unai Emery on how to play Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe in the Gunners’ squad.

Mourinho, who is excited by the potential of Aubameyang, Lacazette, and Pepe, wants Emery not to play the trio like Liverpool’s front line.

Speaking on Sky Sports after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Mourinho said: “I think they [Aubameyang, Lacazette and Pepe] are very good players and normally they should be on the pitch all three together.

“I think Aubameyang probably he likes to play in the middle because he feels if he’s in the middle he can score more goals. But maybe he can score as many goals playing on the left.

“What happens at Liverpool is [Roberto] Firmino drops back, drops in between the lines, and then he gives more space for [Mohamed] Salah and [Sadio] Mane to attack these diagonals.

“At Arsenal, Lacazette doesn’t have that quality, but they have two options. One is to play, instead of like today with three midfield players almost in a straight line, to play how they played in the last 10 or 20 minutes with two [sitting midfielders] and one No.10 that can feed the three without bringing Lacazette in between the lines.

“Another situation that is very possible is to bring Pepe from the right and in many occasions bring him to the inside. Many teams nowadays defend with a back four but build with three in the back, and by doing that they can put for example a right-back completely wide almost as a winger and bring the winger to the inside.”
