Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang confident he will end his Premier League goal drought soon

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang insists he is ‘not worried’ about his goal drought in the Premier League ahead of this weekend’s clash against Manchester United.

The Gunners have lost three of their last four Premier League encounters after a promising start to the season, and talisman Aubameyang has failed to find the net since the opening day against Fulham.

That marks five top-flight games without a goal for the striker – his worst run since back in 2014 with Borussia Dortmund.

And the task gets a whole lot tougher for Aubameyang and Arsenal, who have shown a worrying lack of cutting edge in front of goal, as they get ready to face United away on Sunday afternoon. But he is confident fortunes will change very soon in north London. 

‘We are not finding scoring goals easy at the moment,’ Aubameyang told the Standard. ‘This happens in teams — I haven’t scored for a few games in the league, either. 

‘But we’re an experienced team, with experienced attacking players and we know we will turn this around. I’m not worried about that.’  

While Mikel Arteta has made Arsenal much tighter in defence, he has struggled to find the perfect balance going forward.

The Gunners have netted just eight times in six Premier League goals – only West Brom, Wolves, Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham have scored fewer.

It is a worry for the Gunners but there is no better time to get going than against old Premier League foes United on the weekend.

Both Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were unused substitutes during Arsenal’s 3-0 Europa League victory over Dundalk on Thursday night.

Goals from Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pepe sealed the comfortable victory for the Gunners.

Arteta will be hoping Aubameyang will be fresh and raring to go when Arsenal go to battle against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
