Does Unai Emery know what to do with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

In recent weeks, eyebrows have been raised regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s role at Arsenal.

Aubameyang completed 90 minutes against Wolves.

That’s the first time the Gabonese striker has played a full league match since the opening two weeks of the season.

And Aubameyang has been dropping hints he’s best pleased with his situation at the Emirates Stadium.

After the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, Aubameyang ‘liked‘ a tweet questioning why Unai Emery always takes him off.

Aubameyang then gave off overtly passive aggressive vibes when he was subbed out of Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Against Wolves, more questions about Aubameyang were tabled after Emery shifted the forward’s role at halftime.

Where should Aubameyang play in the Arsenal XI?

Emery made a significant tactical shift at halftime against Wolves.

At the start of the match, Aubameyang was deployed down the left hand side as Alexandre Lacazette played through the middle.

With Arsenal chasing the game at the break, Emery switched from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-1-2 to play Aubameyang in tandem with Lacazette up front.

Social media reaction

Aubameyang’s shifting role in the Arsenal setup has been noticed by plenty of fans on social media.
