Some Arsenal fans have major doubts Aubameyang has the flu

Auba to miss Sheffield through illness

It was revealed yesterday by The Athletic that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be available for Arsenal’s match against Sheffield United due to a bout of flu.

This has been a problem for Arsenal over recent weeks, with Granit Xhaka having also missed a meeting with Liverpool due to a similar issue.

Aubameyang has struggled for form of late, and has even been dropped by Mikel Arteta for crucial fixtures. He came off the bench in midweek against Slavia Prague to set up Nicolas Pepe’s opening goal.

Aubameyang was also benched against Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby after arriving late to the game.

It would be fair to say that he is not having the best of times at present, and further omissions would be unsurprising.

Is he ill?

This has naturally led to widespread scepticism on the part of the Arsenal fan-base regarding whether or not the explanation provided for Auba’s latest absence is true.

Many have questioned whether an ‘excuse’ of illness was used to convince fans that there has not been another disciplinary problem.

Some even pointed towards reports that there are supposedly zero cases of flu in the UK, with it therefore impossible for Aubameyang to have caught it.

However, there were, as is typically the case with Arsenal-based debates, also those on the other side of the fence.

The truth likely falls within more reasonable realms, but what is clear is that there is never a dull moment at the Emirates.
