Posted on February 27, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal may have done it the hard way, but they did just about manage to edge past Benfica and confirm their spot in the UEFA Europa League’s Round of 16. Bukayo Saka was pinpointed as the leading man who got Mikel Arteta’s side over the finish line, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the one who was able to stick the ball in the back of the net on two separate occasions.

He spoke with the media after the game about the win and said how his nerves were doing knowing that Arsenal needed a goal if they wanted to avoid being dumped out of the competition.

While there may be a touch of controversy surrounding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang right now due to his supposed breaching of the COVID-19 rules in place across England, the player was able to get back to near enough his best in an impressive win over Leeds United last weekend.

As noted during an interview with Arsenal.com, one man who looks up to Aubameyang as a striker is none other than Bukayo Saka – who, in his own right, is starting to carve out a real identity for himself at the Emirates this season.

Arsenal are currently investigating allegations that captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke coronavirus lockdown rules by getting a tattoo, according to multiple reports. The Gabonese forward was pictured posing with a tattoo with tattoo artist Alejandro Nicolas Bernal, despite the UK regulations which say that all mobile and static tattoo parlours must remain closed during the lockdown currently in place.

“It is a private matter and we will be speaking to the player to establish the facts,” the Mirror have relayed as a statement from a club spokesman.

Seems a bit sad, doesn’t it?

Mesut Ozil spent seven and a half years at Arsenal. He wore the No. 11 shirt for five, until the club parted ways with Jack Wilshere on a permanent basis in 2018. Then Ozil took the No. 10.

Ozil and Arsenal have reached an agreement to have the contract binding the player to the club until the end of this season terminated with immediate effect, as reported by multiple sources, and the former Germany international is expected to be confirmed as a Fenerbahce player any day now. Plenty of people have been debating his legacy at the club and whether he’ll be missed, but some of his now former teammates have already begun discussing who gets the No.10 shirt.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be playing in Arsenal’s Carabao Cup clash with Manchester City on Tuesday, manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed. The Gabonese forward has not recovered from the injury that kept him out of contention in the 2-1 Premier League defeat away to Everton on Saturday.

Aubameyang picked up a calf problem ahead of the game at Goodison Park, as Arteta revealed on Saturday, adding that it’s a ‘small strain’ and that the captain would need a few more days.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, the boss said it was certain Aubameyang would not be playing against City.

Today is the day for North London as Arsenal prepare to lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur in an absolutely huge derby clash. The two have had very, very different starts to the Premier League season and a win for either here could really give them the momentum boost they need to kick on in this campaign.

One man who is going to be integral to the Gunners’ attempt to pick up all three points is none other than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and during a recent interview with Arsenal.com, the Gabon international made it clear that he knows just how important this game is.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has mostly been deployed on the left side of Arsenal’s attack, not only since Mikel Arteta took over, but under Unai Emery as well. Not putting the team’s best goalscorer into the central attacking position has often been mentioned as something not easily understood by the fans, but the fact remains that the captain has been very effective when cutting in from the left.

As for the Gabonese himself, he was asked about where he prefers to play, and his answer was simple.

The unpopular international break is currently in full swing and a number of Arsenal players have traveled to different corners of the world. Some have remained behind, simply not called up by their respective national teams, or nursing injuries.

One of the latter group is Thomas Partey, who came off at halftime in Arsenal’s shocking defeat at home at the hands of Aston Villa before the break with a hamstring problem. He posted on Instagram to show support to his international teammates and praised Andre Ayew who netted twice in a 2-0 victory for Ghana over Sudan.

One of the biggest transfer worries Arsenal had this summer was certainly the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The importance of the captain to this team and their success in the next couple of seasons can hardly be exaggerated, and thankfully, that issue has been resolved. The Gabonese forward has signed a new contract.

But in an interview with Sky Sports, Aubameyang revealed that leaving the Emirates was indeed an option he considered at one point. He said he gave that possibility some serious thought with several very good offers on his table, before finally deciding to stay put.

Kolasinac in Leverkusen talks

After goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who left to join Aston Villa, Sead Kolasinac could be the next senior player to leave the Emirates in this transfer window. According to PA Sport, the Bosnian left back is currently in talks with Bayer Leverkusen about a proposed return to Germany.

Kolasinac gradually lost his place on the left defensive flank to Kieran Tierney, and though Mikel Arteta has utilized him in a back three, some howling mistakes clearly indicated that he can’t be a long-term solution there either.
