The Arsenal forward has only found the target twice this season, one of them being from the penalty spot.

Arsenal

manager

Mikel Arteta

advised the Gabon international

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

not to overanalyze everything.

The 31-year-old has been a productive goal scorer for the team when he first joined the club with meeting the back of the net 22 times in the last two seasons. However, this season, things took a turn for Aubameyang as he only scored two goals in 11 appearances in the

Premier League

.

Arteta instructed the Gabon striker not to overthink things before Sunday’s clash with Burnley if he wants to get back to his form.

"

Sometimes, it’s how much you think,

" said Arteta. "

With strikers like Auba that has to be in a natural way. He doesn’t need to think

.

"

The action is there, he makes the choice in the right moment, with the correct foot, and puts the ball where it needs to be.

"Sometimes, when you are in this sort of spell, you overthink a bit. There is nothing we can teach him to do differently to what he’s done in the past."

Arsenal are struggling as a whole given their loss in three Premier League matches out of four which has placed them 15th on the table. Although Aubameyang plays a crucial role in his team’s performance, Arteta admits the whole team should carry the burden of scoring on their shoulders.

When you have a player in this spell, you need others to step up. The problem is when there’s two, three or four players in the same way, it becomes unattainable.

“So you need someone there to help him. Then things come more naturally because the pressure is less.“
