Arteta admits biggest Arsenal worry is Aubameyang's lack of goals after scoring just once in NINE Premier League clashesNovember 30, 2020
PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG'S lack of goals is Mikel Arteta's 'biggest concern' at Arsenal.
The 31-year-old striker failed to impress again on Sunday as the Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat to Wolves.
Aubameyang was the star of the show for Arsenal last season as he chipped in with 22 Premier League goals.
But the Gabon international has managed just one goal from open play in ten matches this time around.
Since his goal against Fulham on the opening day of the season, he has only scored one penalty against Manchester United.
The 31-year-old has struggled for form since he penned his new deal in September – which is worth upwards of £350,000-per-week.
And Arteta has insisted the striker's lack of goals is his biggest problem to date.
When asked if he was worried, Arteta said: "I think we all are because the main goalscorer of the club at the moment isn't scoring goals, so my biggest concern is how to help him more to score goals because we need his goals.
"How important Auba has been for this club in the last two years and how the goal sheet has been shared among the squad tells you his importance.
"He needs to be scoring goals if we want to be successful."
As things stand, the Gunners are 14th in the Premier League table after losing five of their opening ten games.
It is the Arsenal's worst start to a season since 1981 – but Arteta does not fear the sack.
Aubameyang has insisted the London club will bounce back and 'shock the world'.
Arteta's men will hope to return to winning ways when they face Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday.
