Winterburn on Arsenal and their goal-less Aubameyang

Thu 03 December 2020 | 16:57

According to the former Gunners, the team should concern more over their collective improvement rather than Aubameyang lack of goals.

Though

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

has been doing a little netting recently,

Arsenal

shouldn’t be concerned over such matter as they are failing to work as a team, believes former Gunners defender,

Nigel Winterburn

.

Winterburn, who believes Arsenal need to work out their struggles in their attacking line while dealing with Aubameyang drawback, said:

“We are concerned because he’s a player that's always scored goals for Arsenal. Whether he was playing at centre-forward or the wing.”

“When things started to go wrong, we thought it was time to move him into the middle, but that is not where he has scored most of his goals for Arsenal. A lot of his goals came from the left-hand side.”

“It's all about confidence. It’s all about the chances you create and the chances that your team-mates provide for you.”

“It's not a major shock that Aubameyang is struggling to score goals because we're not creating enough chances within the game.”

“The Wolves game was slightly different. Arsenal got into the final third a lot more, but the quality of the final passes across just wasn’t good enough.”

“If you continue to do that than anybody that's playing upfront for Arsenal is going to struggle to score goals consistently.”

“If you ask strikers, they’ll tell you that when they’re super confident, they score goals. Instinctively they’ll move into the right positions, the ball falls for them and they score.”

“When out of form and not scoring, strikers will overstretch for chances or delay before taking an opportunity, then the opportunity is gone. It’s very worrying for the team for this to be the case, but that’s what Arsenal have to deal with at the moment.”

For their next match Arsenal will face their

Europa League

opponent,

Rapid Vienna

, before clashing with their rival

Tottenham
