Arsenal coach, Mikel Arteta has come out to say that he is happy with the goalscoring contributions from every department of his team. Arteta recently revealed that even if he wants Aubameyang to score more, he is pleased with how he has been relieved of the goalscoring burden.
According to him, the club cannot keep putting all the weight on Auba’s shoulders to score the goals, as contributions are needed from other players as well.
He added that he is happy to see Lacazette in amazing form because that is what he needs from his strikers.
His words, “I keep saying, we can’t keep putting all the weight on Auba’s shoulders to score the goals,”
“We need contributions. The midfielders need to score more and give more assists, and we need goals from our wingers as well.
“Laca is in great form and has scored five goals in his last four games, which is what we need from our strikers. Auba had some chances today to score and it was the same in the last game or so, but I am so pleased because in the final third we looked lively and there was a lot of movement.”
“There is good energy, there is a real purpose and everybody is playing forwards. It’s like we are free to play there and the understanding is allowing us to generate a lot of things there.”
