Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says that both the players and manager Mikel Arteta are trying to overcome their problems in front of goal.
The Gunners have struggled to score in the Premier League this season, notching up just nine goals in nine games in the top-flight.
However, the Gabonese forward spoke of his confidence that both the manager and players will find the solution to their current malaise.
Aubameyang said: “The biggest problem the club is facing right now is the lack of goals. But the manager and the rest of the players are trying to overcome this problem. Even though the results have not been good recently, we still hope that in the near future everything will be fine and we will surprise the world. We have the players that will take us to the level we want to get to.” (via AfriqueSports)
Who should be Arsenal's number nine for the Tottenham clash?
Whilst the club may be in turmoil on the pitch, it’s evident from the captain’s comments that there still remains a strong sense of comradery within the squad. This element has been strong since Unai Emery left and was replaced by the former Manchester City coach.
It can’t be easy to go so long without a goal from open play as the Gunners have done in the league, however, at least the players won’t turn on each other as has been evident during difficult moments in the past.
However, a quick fix is needed or the side may well find themselves falling far behind in the race for a top-four finish in the league. The race for Champions League football is hotting up in England and the north London outfit already find themselves five points off the pace with barely half the season gone.
Turning on each other in tough times rarely fixes things, but, with a squad that retains such strong relations, I’m 100% that the good times in front of goal are just around the corner.
