Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta denies breaking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but worries about drought in goals

The Gabonese striker’s poor form continued with wasted chances in Thursday’s frustrating 3-2 loss to Manchester United, as he also produced a failed candidate of the season in the win over Newcastle on Last weekend.

Aubameyang has now failed to score in each of his last five matches, while three of the seven he has scored in all competitions so far this quarter have come in the same game – 6-0 demolition of the West Brom Carabao Cup in August. .

“You are always [concerned] when your main striker isn’t scoring goals but doing his best, ”Arteta said ahead of Monday night’s Premier League clash with struggling Everton at Goodison Park.

“He’s aware of how much we need him as a team to score goals and at the moment they’re not coming but the rest of the things we ask him to do he’s doing his best.”

However, Arteta insists that there is no such problem and that a player of Aubameyang’s influence and reputation was not humbled to be sent off at such a crucial time in a great game.

“I can guarantee you there is no loophole. You have to respect their opinion, but what I can tell you is that I have the relationship I want with him, ”said the Spaniard.

“When I make decisions with 15, 20, 30 minutes left, or in the lineup at the start, it’s done with intention and that’s to get the most out of the team.

“This [humiliated] is the last word I would use with my players because if it’s humiliation imagine what it is for those who are excluded from the squad.
