Recently Moradinezhad Dizgah & Durrer have shown that the $E_g$ statistics, useful to test theories of modified gravity, is plagued by additional scale and bias dependent lensing contributions. In this work we develop and illustrate a method to remove these lensing terms by using in addition to the galaxy clustering data also shear data and the correlations of shear and galaxy clustering. We introduce a truly observable statistics termed $\tilde E_g$ which conserves the properties of scale and… CONTINUE READING
