Aubameyang admits lack of goals is Arsenal’s ‘biggest problem’

Aubameyang bemoans Arsenal’s lack of goals

Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw by Leeds United last weekend.

The result, in turn, no doubt only further deepened the concern surrounding the Gunners’ attacking issues of late.

Arsenal have scored just a solitary goal across their last five Premier League outings – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty vs Manchester United.

To find the last time that the north Londoners netted from open play in the league, meanwhile, one must shift their focus all the way back to October 4th, when Nicolas Pepe notched vs Sheffield United.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal’s top scorer over the last two seasons, has also been struggling in front of goal, finding the net just twice in nine league appearances.

And the African has, as a result, since spoken out over his side’s diminishing attack threat:

“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.”

Molde vs Arsenal

Arsenal’s next chance to end their poor goalscoring run comes later this evening, when they return to European action.

The Gunners face a trip to Norway for a meeting with Molde, as they aim to bounce back following a recent dip in form.

Mikel Arteta’s side have won just one of their last five Premier League outings, due largely to a lack of production in attack.

In the Europa League, though, the north Londoners have looked admittedly solid, albeit up against much weaker opposition.

Regardless, Arteta will no doubt be keen to secure a 4th straight European win on Thursday, to ensure his side’s progression into the Europa League’s knockout stages.
