Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang took his barren run in front of goal to three games after he failed to find the back of the net on the final day of the Premier League season at the weekend. Pierre-EmerickAubameyang was overshadowed by fellow African star Nicholas Pepe as Arsenal ended the season with a 2-0 win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Arsenal started the Brighton game with a good chance of making Europe next season and with Aubameyang as the lone striker but he was largely anonymous as the Gunners did the double over the Seagulls for the first time in the Premier League era thanks to the 2-0 win made possible by the abovementioned Pepe. The in-form Ivorian national team player was the difference between the two teams.


Glenn Hoddle has sounded a note of warning to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta about his tactics during the London Derby win over Chelsea on Wednesday. Ex-England national team manager Hoddle was on Premier League TV to give his analysis on the huge clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal and Chelsea both needed to win the game to stay in the hunt for European football in the new season. Arsenal are hunting down a place in the Europa League, while the Blues have designs on a place in the Champions League.


Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has come under huge criticism this season following his poor form and his future has recently been a huge topic of interest. The Arsenal striker is no longer to be as dangerous as he used to be in the opposition box.

When Aubameyang first signed for Arsenal from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund under Arsene Wenger, he was a very potent attacker and was scoring goals for fun. He began gaining comparisons to the club's former striker Thierry Henry in the process.


While the future of Arsenal striker and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to remain under threat, doubt and huge question, the club's manager Mikel Arteta has come out to reveal that he believes the Gabonese superstar is more than willing to remain at the Emirates Stadium in a bid to rediscover his goalscoring form and make more contributions to the team.

Arteta also said the striker continues to be fully committed and also concentrated to ensure that he takes an active part in helping the team achieve their set goals and objectives toward the end of the current season and in preparation for the next one.


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.

In the interview he had with the Premier League's official YouTube channel, one of the questions he was asked is who the fastest player in the Arsenal team is.


Key Arsenal players have reportedly back manager Mikel Arteta on his decision to drop club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 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-Emerick Aubameyang, 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-Emerick Aubameyang 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.

Arteta Insists Arsenal Can Cope With The Absence Of Star Striker

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-Emerick Aubameyang.

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-Emerick Aubameyang to score against the Magpies. The Arsenal manager talked about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during his post-match presser after the game.

Mikel Arteta led Arsenal to win the FA Cup last season and he has already talked about winning it again this term.
