Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Mikel Arteta laments Arsenal striker's ban being upheld

Mikel Arteta is pleased with the improvement in Arsenal's defensive work rate

Arsenal are set to be without Aubameyang for three matches after he received a straight red card following a VAR review for his 65th-minute tackle on Max Meyer during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.

"Players have to step up". The Gunners are already poor enough away from home, but if you take Aubameyang out of the equation, they genuinely might be among the worst away teams in Europe's top 5 leagues, let alone the Premier League.

The ex-Germany worldwide said this ahead of Arsenal's Premier League clash against Sheffield United on Saturday. "I understand that they're a huge football club but, in terms of where James Maddison is at this moment in time, I think he's better off staying at Leicester certainly until the end of the season and then weigh things up again then".

"What we have to try to do is put "Laca" in positions where he can have as many opportunities to do that as possible during a game".


Arsenal are believed to have expressed an interest in the former Everton defender as they look to bolster their defensive options this month, the club's new boss Mikel Arteta having struck up a good relationship with the centre-back during his previous three-year spell on the coaching staff at City.

"John is a player that I really like and I followed".

Arteta revealed that Sead Kolasinac could miss Saturday's game with a thigh strain while fellow defender Calum Chambers is a long-term absentee having undergone surgery on a ruptured ACL.

"It is basically getting us back to the old Arsenal virtues", Ozil said as quoted by The Sun. We have to live with it, this is what we have.
