How many teams are consistently fielding two strikers ? as good as these strikers might be, having two of them in the same team does create some tactical headaches, especially for teams with questionable midfield like Arsenal.

If anything, I think Emery managed both of them very well. Someone like Mourinho would've probably picked a favorite and completely ostracized the other for the rest of the season.

In an ideal world I'd agree, but reality is Arsenals team isn't good enough to be splitting them up like that.

They should be going all in on both until further notice, as it's not really worth benching one for "balance" when the alternatives are crap.

Exactly.
But they harmonise so well with each other that Emery has basically tried to field them together as much as possible.

So for most of the season, Emery would only start Lacazette and Aubameyang together if he could put one of them on the wings. For the opening games, Auba played LW and Laca up top. When the team struggled for fluency, Emery started dropping one of them and bringing them on at half-time when we needed a goal. It was like that for a long time.

It hasn't been until recently that we've settled on a 3-4-1-2 formation that lets Emery play them both as a centre forwards. I believe the inconsistent form of Iwobi and Mkhitaryan, the difficulties in extracting the best out of Ozil and Ramsey's injury problems forced his hand, in the end. Auba and Laca were the only two attackers putting in consistently good performances, so they had to be together on the pitch.

Emery is a 4-2-3-1 guy usually and he tried to get that set-up to work in the first part of the season, until he discovered he didn't have the players. Problem is, I have no idea if 3-4-1-2 is going to be our shape from now on, or if we'll sign players in the summer to make 4-2-3-1 work better for us. The only reason 3-4-1-2 even works is because of Auba's and Laca's amazing work rate when pressing and running into wide spaces.
