Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits he’s not 100% fit before Man United

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: I’m not 100%

There are fresh quotes from Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before Wednesday’s Premier League match at Arsenal.

Aubameyang was on fire against Tottenham last weekend in the north London derby.

The Arsenal striker scored twice – his second goal was a beauty.

Aubameyang is now the leading scorer in the Premier League with 10 goals. That’s two more than Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.

However, according to the Gabonese centre-forward, he’s still not in peak condition:

I think I’m not at 100% but it’s coming. It’s coming and against Spurs I felt very good on the pitch.

I like to play up front but I know that I can help the team. Sometimes the coach puts me on the left side but as I said it [centre forward] is my favourite position.

Arsenal injury updates before Man United

Arsenal are fourth in the league after their win over Tottenham.

Indeed, the Gunners are just one point behind Chelsea after 14 matches.

Unai Emery will head to Old Trafford with several selection issues to contend with.

Will Mesut Ozil be fit enough to play against United? And if the German is past his recent back spasm, should Ozil even get into the team?

At the back, Emery has headaches.

Shkodran Mustafi picked up a knock against Tottenham, while Nacho Monreal has a thigh problem.

Konstantinos Mavropanos is injured, while Laurent Koscielny is on the comeback trail after a lengthy absence.

Elsewhere, Granit Xhaka is out of the Man United game after collecting his fifth booking of the season versus Spurs.

Danny Welbeck remains a long term absentee after his ankle break.
