EPL teams are currently shutting off Arsenal’s supply line to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kevin Campbell has said.
Campbell recently revealed that Mikel Arteta needs someone else to step up to offer moments of match-winning inspiration when the Gabonese is stifled.
According to him, AFC’s opponents keep challenging Arsenal to beat them without Aubameyang, so the coach has to come up with a game plan to be effective without the African.
He added that Arsenal have an outside chance at the title this year because only Everton and Aston Villa have been outstanding thus far.
His words, “Opposing teams are cutting off Aubameyang’s supply.
“Opposition are challenging Arsenal to beat them without Aubameyang, because they’re ensuring all roads to Aubameyang are cut off.
“Arsenal need to be beat teams with someone other than Aubgameyang. The moment you start beating the teams with someone other than Aubameyang, then the opposition stop singling him out so much.
“I understand that other teams are scheming to stop Arsenal in this way, so they need to come up with a smart game plan and that’s something that Arteta needs to work out himself.”
“Arsenal have an outside chance at the title this year, no team has really taken a grip of the Premier League so far other than Everton and Aston Villa, who have surprised everybody.
“However, we do know that after 10 games or so the league will start settling down and the usual suspects tend to find their form and just keep picking points up.
“So, it is key for Arsenal to stay up there, get the points in the bag and stay up where they need to be. Then, they can see how things go after Christmas and into the New Year.
“I truly believe they have an outside chance, with the quality that they’ve got at the moment.”
