Arsen midfielder Martin Odegaard was holding an interview recently where he made some revelations about the entire Arsenal team and the current happenings within the squad. The Norwegian midfielder who is on loan from Real Madrid has worked his way into the Arsenal starting team under manager Mikel Arteta this season and he is currently having a great season as well.
Key Arsenal players have reportedly back manager Mikel Arteta on his decision to drop club skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang for the North London Derby at the weekend. This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Mail. It was revealed that some of the big names at Arsenal are in support of the decision. It was also revealed that some Arsenal players are sympathetic towards Pierre-EmerickAubameyang, who was dropped for arguably the biggest game of the season at Arsenal. Aubameyang was set to start until Arteta made decision to drop him from his starting line-up. In his pre-match presser before the North London Derby on Sunday evening, Arteta confirmed that Pierre-EmerickAubameyang was dropped for disciplinary reasons but he refused to give details when pressed further by the reporter who was asking the questions.
Arsenal star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently having one of the worst seasons in his career in terms of goal returns. The Gabon international striker is suffering a poor form this campaign and has scored just 8 goals in his last 22 games - a very unusual record for such a high-profile striker as Aubameyang. The striker only put pen to paper to sign a contract extension after he was persuaded by Gunners fans, but his form has not been pleasant at all.
In Arsenal's previous game against Leeds United, the former Borussia Dortmund man scored a hat-trick, something that made fans believe that he was gradually returning to his best following his poor form throughout the current campaign.
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been a ghost of his former self this season and continues to have problems replicating his best form for Arsenal. His record of just 17 shots on target in as many as 23 Premier League matches is baffling and worrying, with many believing that the player has gone well past his best as a prolific striker.
The striker has scored just 5 goals so far this season with those 17 shots and honestly speaking, that return for such a low turnout of shots is quite impressive, to an extent. Arsenal have as many as eight attacking players in their team and are maybe too reliant on the Gabonese striker as they have suffered woefully during the period he has not been playing well or been scoring.
While the Gunners have up to eight Attackers in their team, only Aubameyang can be considered as a world-class option and little wonders why they have continued to struggle when he does the same. It would be interesting to note that Aubameyang has been as clinical as he can be given that he has not yet missed a big goal scoring chance so far this season. When we put this into context, it can be agreed that Auba has not been scoring enough goals because he has not been getting enough chances to do so.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has indicated that while the club have caught themselves being too reliant on star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the players are trying to unlearn the habit. The Gunners boss made this statement after it was confirmed that the Gabonese international striker will not be part of the team to take on Manchester United on Saturday evening.
Aubameyang did not take a part in his side's 1-0 FA Cup loss against Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium last Saturday while he was also missing in action as Arsenal sealed a 3-1 victory over the same opponents just three days after. He took to social media after missing those two games to give a brief explanation that his absence was as a result of him caring for his mother who was suffering from health issues.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has expressed his optimism that the Newcastle United goal would be the start of good things for club skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang. Gabonese international Aubameyang, fondly called Auba, was on target for the Gunners in their FA Cup third round victory over Newcastle United and his manager is hopeful that it would be the start of a good spell in front of goal for the player.
According to Arteta, it was key for Pierre-EmerickAubameyang to score against the Magpies. The Arsenal manager talked about Pierre-EmerickAubameyang during his post-match presser after the game.
Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang returned to the starting XI for the away game at Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier Leagueon Tuesday night. Pierre-EmerickAubameyang had not played for the Gunners since the Southampton game earlier this month. The Gabonese international had picked up a calf problem which ruled him out of the Arsenal XI in each of the last three games in all competitions and the last two matches in the Premier League.
Pierre-EmerickAubameyang ended his goal drought by scoring the only goal of the game for 10-man Arsenal in a 1-1 draw at home to the Saints. He had gone four games without a goal until the Southampton game which saw the Gunners end proceedings with ten men after Brazilian centre back Gabriel Magalhaes was sent off in the second half.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has sent out a sounding warning to all of his players, especially star striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. The boss stated it clear that there is not any player in the squad who cannot be dropped to the bench.
This comes after the agent of Gabonese striker Aubameyang threw a jibe at the Spanish manager insisting that his style of play has not been fruitful enough to provide chances for the former Borussia Dortmund striker to score goals this season.
The Arsenal forward has come under fire this season on numerous occasions, failing to find his goal-scoring boots ever since he put pen to paper on a new contract at the London club.
Arsenal midfielder Willian has been a shadow of himself since his summer move from London rivals Chelsea and his poor form continued during the shocking home defeat to Aston Villa in their Premier League meeting at the weekend.
Willian had spent almost a decade at Chelsea before the failure to agree a new contract paved the way for him to sign for the North London team on a free transfer.
It is really a very hard time for any of the players to sit at the gallery or at the dressing room after being injured before the most crucial match of the tournament. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the captain of Arsenal has got his ankle sprained and is in a highly doubtful situation to appear in the match against Manchester City. The head Gunner may miss the crucial clash between the two gigantic teams of the English Premier League.
The official release from the team authority says that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has some sprain in his ankle and it happened during the clash with Sheffield in the Premier League Match. The team doctor has suggested rest for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a week so that he can recover from his injury and can join the team with the full utility of his capacity and skills.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started his career at Dijon as he was sent to this club from A.C. Milan on loan.
