The goal poacher that fans knew has become a rather quiet and mismatched figure in the Arsenal setup after he renewed his contract with the club.
With Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s current form, it is evident Arsenal fans are devastated and on the edge of calling him out. Coach Mikel Arteta has shown faith in his skipper and kept him on the field irrespective of the bad day the captain shows on the pitch.
After scoring a winner against Manchester United, its been a goal holiday for the Gabonese international player and it is causing his team a fortune.
Arsenal since 1959 have not lost 4 consecutive home games but under Mikel Arteta, it seems Arsenal is rewriting records. Arsenal played against Burnley in the EPL fixture at the Emirates Stadium where 2000 fans could have an on-field stadium return experience.
Burnley on the other hand had never recorded a win at the Emirates Stadium and it would mean a lot to them if they added their name to the record book.
It was a rather quiet night as both teams’ sort after the opening goal but Arteta and his men continued their previous run been wasteful in front of goal.
Arteta has to readjust his squad as they picked a red card in the early minutes of the second half as Xhaka engaged in rather unprofessional sportsmanship behavior.
Arsenal had to manage with a player down for 32’ plus added time as they controlled the pressure mounted by the visitor in their pursuit for a first win at the Emirates Stadium.
Sean Dyche on the night had Aubameyang to thank as the goal-stricken Arsenal skipper gifted the visitors a goal from a corner kick.
His tracking back to help his side defend the corner kick resulted in an own goal which was enough to see Burnley pick all three points and break the curse that had been hanging on their head at the Emirates Stadium.
Auba after been called out to score did record a goal for the night but it wasn’t one to celebrate as it caused his side to lose on the night as well as drop further on the league standing. Arsenal after 12 matches have picked 13 points out of a possible 36 and currently 15th on the league log.
