Tue 22 December 2020 | 17:01

The Gunners captain will not be attending their Tuesday Carabao Cup clash due to a calf injury.

Arsenal

striker,

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

, who has been sidelined due to a recent injury, gave an update on his recovery as he hoped that

“it won’t take long to recover”

. Despite being out of form this season, Aubameyang still continues to be an important asset for the Gunners.

The 31-year-old striker has already been kept out of Arsenal Tuesday line-up against

Manchester City

, but he hopes to return to the pitch very soon.

The player talked about his injury, saying:  "

It was really tough for me to miss the game on Saturday, and not to be out there with my team-mates.”

“I have a small problem with my calf but hopefully it won’t take long to recover.”

“So I had to watch the Everton game at home and it was a tough one to take again. I thought we were getting on top in the first half, but it’s always difficult when you concede a goal just before half-time.”

“We kept attacking in the second half though and with a bit more luck, one or two of our chances could have gone in. David Luiz hit the bar and Bukayo [Saka] had a shot saved right at the end.”

“But we have to accept it, we have to take the defeat and pick ourselves up as soon as we can.”

“For the moment, the most important thing to do is win games and get points. We are thinking about the cup tonight and in this competition in the past we have often seen young players get a chance.”

“And with the Europa League as well this season, there have been maybe more opportunities for the young guys to get minutes.”  

Aubameyang, who believes

Florain Balogun

and

Miguel Azeez

can have an important role in Arsenal, added:

“We saw a few more young players in our last European game and we also have them joining with training quite a lot lately and one player who I think looks really good is Miguel Azeez.”

“Miguel is going to be a great player in the future. He’s really calm and mature so I’m sure he’s got what you need to be a success and have a big career.”

“We know it’s not just about talent at that age. When you are a young player trying to come through at a club like Arsenal then sure there’s a lot of pressure.”

“You have to be patient too because we have great players who are playing in the first-team and it’s always hard to find your way through.”
