Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he is ‘not worried’ amid Arsenal goal drought

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not concerned despite his lack of goals this season.

Aubameyang has not found the net since putting pen to paper on a new deal at the Emirates in the middle of September.

It means it’s five league matches without a goal for the Gabon striker for the first time since November 2014.

Arsenal have struggled as a team in front of goal having scored just eight times in their first six games.

Though Aubameyang is not worried about his own form, nor that of the Gunners after a 3-0 win over Dundalk.

"We are not finding scoring goals easy at the moment," Aubameyang said. "This happens in teams — I haven't scored for a few games in the league, either.

"But we're an experienced team, with experienced attacking players and we know we will turn this around. I'm not worried about that."

Aubameyang was not involved in the Europa League clash with Mikel Arteta admitting he needed to get his star man firing again.

“Expectations for him are that he has to score a goal every game so this comes with the nature of the big player he is, what he has done in the past.

“People expect that from him in the future. He needs to handle that, and we are here to support him when difficult times come round him.

“The moment he does not score, [there are calls that] he needs to play as a nine. If you play him as a nine, why don’t you keep him on the left because he has been so successful on the left?”
