Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has opened up on his worry about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s lack of goals for the team.
Aubameyang has not scored in his last five appearances for the Gunners.
The 32-year-old’s last goal dates back to October 22, in their 3-1 victory over Aston Villa.
Despite his recent struggles, Aubameyang remains the club’s top scorer with seven goals in all competitions – four in the league and three in the League Cup.
Ahead of their trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Monday, Arteta revealed that the 2016 African Footballer of the Year is trying his best to rediscover his goalscoring form.
“You are always [concerned] when your main striker isn’t scoring goals but he is trying his hardest,” Arteta told the club’s website.
“He is aware of how much we need him as a team to score goals and, at the moment, they are not coming but the rest of the things we are asking him to do, he is trying his best.”
Emile Smith-Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard have stood out for Arsenal with goals in their last four matches.
