Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hit out at Gunners manager Mikel Arteta over the strikers poor form.

After scoring 22 goals in his previous two seasons in the Premier League, he has found the net only twice this year.

His struggles this season have been compounded by Arsenal’s poor league position, sitting in 15th place.

Most recently, the Gunners slumped to a 2-0 away defeat to rivals Tottenham in the North London derby.

Post match, Arteta was quick to criticise his teams form in front of goal.

The Spaniard said that his teams 10 goals this season were “unsustainable”.

However, the Arsenal captain’s agent, Kwaku Mensah had a different view. Shifting the blame back onto the Arsenal manager.

In an Instagram story, Mensah showed a collection of statistics, criticising Arteta.

The statistics showed that, Arsenal were ranked 17th for league goals, 18th for shots on target and crucially, 20th for chances created.

He captioned the post: “if you create chances…”. Digging at Arsenal’s lack of creativity.

Playmaker Mesut Ozil has been dropped from the side under Arteta, with many fans calling for his return to the side.

Aubameyang, who signed a contract extension in the summer – fending off interest from Barcelona has come under fire this season.

The 31-year old has scored 76 goals in 122 appearances for Arsenal after joining the club from Borussia Dortmund in 2018.

For Arteta, the lack of goals will be a massive worry.

When he took the Arsenal job in 2019 from Unai Emery a massive rebuild was promised, and required.

However, with this tough start to the season, Arteta could find his job in the balance.

Arsenal fans have bemoaned the lack of creativity from the team.

Summer signing, Willian, has been heavily criticised. With Arteta taking a lot of the blame, due to his constant selection of the Brazilian.

Arsenal, undefeated so far in the Europa league, will face Dundalk in the competition next. Following this they face Burnley and Southampton in the Premier league, two crucial must win fixtures.
