Arsenal fans have the right to be frustrated with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang right now, Nigel Winterburn has said.
He recently revealed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has certainly been less effective out wide and his lack of goals is affecting the team.
According to him, the fans of the club deserve to be angry with the Gabonese forward because they will surely expect more from him after his recent contract extension.
He added that maybe it is time to play the African as the main striker since his current role is not working.
His words, “Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has certainly been less effective out wide. If you look back at all the games that he has played for Arsenal, he has started from the wide positions and has been scoring a lot of goals.
“It is hard to say whether he would be more effective playing down the middle because he has been pushed wide to fit in Alexandre Lacazette. However right now, Lacazette is going through a dry patch in terms of scoring goals and not being that game changer for Arsenal that he once was.
“You have to consider that maybe he is not getting the service into the box, so when your team isn’t creating as many chances, there is always the claim that Aubameyang should play through the middle and be the main centre forward.”
“Arsenal have many options in the wide areas, with the likes of [Nicolas] Pepe, Willian and Bukayo Saka. Mikel Arteta may look at it and think it hasn’t been working and change it.
“The fans will be rightly frustrated because he [Aubameyang] is the top goal scorer and currently, he is not putting the ball in the back of the net, not just because he is playing out wide, there is a lot more to it than that.”
