Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang he has failed to hit his normal scoring levels this season. But per his coach, Mikel Arteta needs to assist Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in regaining his best form.
Arsenal are preparing to play every game like it were a final for the rest of the season. The Gunners return to action on Saturday after the international break, when Liverpool tour Emirates Stadium.
And Arteta has no doubts about his player’s dedication.
“We talked for months about the ratio of goals we need him to score to give us the best possible chance of being at the top,” Arteta told the media ahead of the Liverpool game according to the official club website.
“He’s not been what he has been in recent years, a factor that is contributed by a lot of other things that the team has to do on the pitch – it’s not just his thing.
“Obviously, we need Auba in a different form in the next games to give us the best chance to finish where we want to finish this season, that is clear.”
This isn’t the first time that Arteta needs to assist Aubameyang, at least with the press. He has defended his player previously, too.
