Arteta remains unborthered about Aubameyang goal drought, says wingers and midfielders must support in scoring

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal scoring has continued and the forward hasn't been able to replicate his great form of last season.

If you recall that the former Borussia Dortmund star powered Arsenal to the FA Cup after his goals against Manchester City and Chelsea in the semi-finals and final in Wembley.

Aubameyang also finished in second place in the goal scorers chat at the end of the season. 

But this season, Aubameyang has scored three goals so far in 15 league games. It was gathered that his last goal came as the equaliser in their 1-1 draw against Southampton on December 1st 2020.

Last night, Arsenal recorded a massive three points after their 4-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion. 

Goals from Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka in the first half saw Mikel Arteta side raced to a two goals lead until Alexander Lacazette brace in the second half completed the comfortable win.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta has stated that he's not bothered that he's striker, Aubameyang hasn't been scoring. 

According to statistics after the game, the Gabon international managed three shots at the Hawthorns on Saturday night.

But Arteta admits that he's relieved that the goal scoring duties has been lifted frm the shoulders of Aubameyang. 

“I keep saying, we can’t keep putting all the weight on Auba’s shoulders to score the goals,” Mikel Arteta told Arsenal's website.

“We need contributions. The midfielders need to score more and give more assists, and we need goals from our wingers as well.

“Laca is in great form and has scored five goals in his last four games, which is what we need from our strikers. Auba had some chances today to score and it was the same in the last game or so, but I am so pleased because in the final third we looked lively and there was a lot of movement."

Following the victory against Sam Allardyce side that are currently in the 19th position, Arsenal have moved up to 12th position in the league standing. 

The Gunners have 23 points are they are just 9 points away from the top four spot. 

Arsenal will host Newcastle in their FA Cup action next weekend before they face Crystal Palace at the Emirates in their next Premier League game.

Arteta added: “There is good energy, there is a real purpose and everybody is playing forwards. It’s like we are free to play there and the understanding is allowing us to generate a lot of things there.”
