Arteta hopeful Aubameyang will score in every game after ending his goal drought

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is hoping that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will score in every game after ending his goal drought in the North London side’s 1-1 draw against Southampton.

On what a goal will do for Aubameyang’s confidence, Arteta said:

“Hopefully it’s going to change everything and he will start to score every game. This is what we need at the moment. We need the points, in order to do that we need more goals and to be more efficient when we have the chances so I think it’s gonna make him good.”

The club captain scored just his third goal of the Premier League season and his first since a penalty he dispatched in a 1-0 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford over a month ago. This was the first goal he scored from open play in the Premier League since the first game of the season against Fulham. 

Since moving to North London, the Gabon international has been the primary goalscorer at the club and his lack of goals have hurt the club’s results. It must be said that a significant reason for his goals drying up is the lack of creativity in this current Arsenal side. The Gunners’ creativity has been on the wane for the last two years and Aubameyang has been one of the most efficient finishers in England. 

This season, the club’s creativity has fallen off a cliff and the former Borussia Dortmund striker has not been as clinical in front of goal as he has been in the past. Arteta and Arsenal fans will be banking on their number 14 returning to form now that he has found the back of the net again.
