Aubameyang Vs Lukaku: Striker Comparison After Matchday 10 In The EPL

Two of the most important attributes a striker needs are speed and quickness. Speed allows a player to outrun a defender and win a 50/50 ball. Quickness provides a striker with a first step that enables them to get past a center-back.

Good strikers find small windows or open spaces to take a shot, read the game and anticipate where the ball is going. They follow up shots, close defenders down, and force them to put their heads down, develop the ability to hit the ball with all parts of both feet, and also learn to redirect the ball.

The English Premier League has witnessed great strikers down the years but today, we compare Aubameyang and Lukaku after matchday 10 of 2021/2022 season.

There is no doubt that Aubameyang's body language for Arsenal in the 2020/2021 season indicates a player who thinks he deserved a better club for his mastery.

The Gabon frontman has been Arsenal's main man for four years after joining the team in 2018. He has registered a total of 68 goals in 122 games for the Gunners.

He, however, did not find his form for 2020/2021, scoring only 10 goals, with two coming from the penalty spot.

Despite all of these downs, Aubemeyang's record as a clinical striker is not in question, with the Arsenal captain having registered over 200 goals so far in his career.

Lukaku has had both highs and lows, but one thing that has never been challenged is its coring capacity.

Coming into the limelight in Everton F.C, the Belgian was a consistent thorn against top English teams and at one time registered a hattrick against Manchester United in the 2012/2013 season.

Before joining Man United, he was signed to Chelsea, where he was the club's top scorer for all 3 seasons.

He scored a total of 42 goals for Man United before joining Inter Milan.

Lukaku masterminded his Inter Milan team to the scudetto title for the 2020/2021 season with 24 goals making him the highest goal scorer for the season.
