Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says Arsenal are “trying to overcome” their lack of goals in recent Premier League matches.
It has now been 431 minutes since Mikel Arteta’s side scored a goal from open play in the Premier League, with their recent 1-0 victory over Manchester United coming courtesy of a Aubameyang penalty.
That spot-kick was only the Gabon international’s second goal of the season with 31-year-old struggling for form this term.
“The biggest problem the club is facing right now is the lack of goals,” Aubameyang told AfriqueSports. “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.”
Speaking about their recent run of poor results, Arteta said recently: “If you see the results that have happened in the Premier League and why teams win or lose games, the margins are minimal.
“Teams are winning with one shot on target or with two shots on target. We want to improve that, of course we do. But as well there are many aspects that I am really happy with, enthusiastic and optimistic about.
“When I see the young talents we got here and the future that we can produce for them, it’s things that get me really excited.
“We know that we are going to go through difficult periods because you don’t change issues that have been going on for years in a small amount of time, it’s all about the context and how we are working. It makes it harder but we know that we are Arsenal and our aim is to be the best all the time.”
