Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal drought distracts from larger problems at Arsenal

In Arsenal’s last five Premier League games, star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has only mustered five shots. At this moment in time, the target he’s most affiliated with is undoubtedly the one on his back.

A 1-0 defeat to Leicester City on Sunday night marked the first time the Gabon international failed to score in five consecutive games since 2014 when he suffered a similar barren run at Borussia Dortmund.

Fans, pundits and an army of Twitter trolls have been quick to take aim at the sharpshooter who’s drought in the league has extended to 483 minutes of regulation time. That is to be expected when you sign a new contract that reportedly commands over £350,000-per-week in wages.

A bumper deal of that magnitude automatically makes you scapegoat-in-chief should you not live up to near impossible expectations. Just ask Mesut Ozil who’s currently enduring one of football’s iciest freeze-outs at the north London club.

The fact that Aubameyang’s last league goal came just a few days before penning an extension isn’t great for optics and is doing him no favours. Former Tottenham and England striker Darren Bent was one of many to take a cynical view.

“Before he signed his contract, he was absolutely everywhere – running back, tracking back, putting tackles in, breaking forward,” he said on talkSPORT.

“There was a real hunger and intensity to his game. At the minute, you can see there’s been a massive drop-off. When you focus so much on getting a new deal like Aubameyang did, you’ll run that extra yard and make that extra effort.”

There’s no denying the 31-year-old has been poor in recent games, but that is true of Arsenal as a whole in the final third.

The Gunners have scored just five times in their last five matches in

Soft defending and ponderous play themes of Man City’s stuttering season after West Ham draw

A frustrating 1-1 draw at West Ham meant Manchester City’s floundering start to the Premier League campaigned continued on Saturday evening.

The Citizens went behind courtesy a Michail Antonio overhead kick in the 18th minute and their ponderous play created precious little in their efforts to pulled off a comeback victory.

After dropping points against Leicester City and Leeds United already this season, they surrendered another two on this occasion with second-half substitute Phil Foden’s effort only managing to salvage a draw.

CITY RECORD VS WEST HAM

On paper, this shouldn’t have been a contest. City have had the beating of West Ham several times over, particularly at the London Stadium.

Over their last five visits, City scored past West Ham 22 times and conceded just once.

A defeat for the Hammers in their latest clash with Pep Guardiola’s side would’ve equalled a club record 10 successive losses against the same opponents.

However, a dramatic 3-3 draw against Tottenham last week put a spring in West Ham’s step and helped them take the lead on Saturday. After all, they became the first team to avoid defeat after trailing by at least three goals as late as the 81st minute.

What transpired was another hard-fought performance from David Moyes’ troops who proved difficult for City’s possession-based style to dismantle.

NO SECOND HALF SERGE

Sergio Aguero hasn’t looked himself this season as he battles to regain match fitness. The striker has not scored a Premier League goal in eight matches
