Mikel Arteta: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Mikel Arteta believes that it is just a matter of time before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finds his scoring touch. He revealed that he has been pleased with the Arsenal captain and his performances leading up to the North London derby. After a long contract-extension saga last summer, the Gabonese striker could only score 10 goals last season. He had scored 22 goals and won the Golden Boot the season prior.

“Well, that was just an incident that I had to make a decision over and I did on the day,” Mikel Arteta said about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. “We as a team have some ways of working together, and this (Aubameyang’s actions) weren’t how we do that, so we made a decision. I think now he’s been in really good form. I think the way he played at Burnley, even if he didn’t score a goal, was extraordinary, the way he played for the team. So we expect him to do the same (on Sunday).”

“He will (score more goals) and he’s generated the chances. We have to generate more and we have to put him in more goalscoring positions which we know how he’s going to end up in. He’s in good form.” he added. “You need a special moment and details. A lot of things decide these types of fixtures and big players step in. I will make sure that they (the players) understand what it means, the history between the two clubs.”
