Arsenal was not successful in terms of chance creation so far this season and the strikers are under pressure.
Arteta believes in a more disciplinary football in which everyone has certain instructions and responsibilities and the approach is more structured. An approach in which strikers won’t get many clear-cut chances as the opponent will have to defend much deeper.
have been less than impressive going forward and they were unable to create clear goal-scoring chances and according to Wright, this is the reasonAubameyang
has not performed well this season.
The Arsenal legend told Premier League Productions of Aubameyang's output after the win against the Magpies:
"You look at the goals he scored today, those are the kind of chances you want to create for him.
"You’ve got someone like Thomas Partey, when he gets in a situation he’s looking to pass it forward.
"Aubameyang wants that situation, he wants that one-on-one situation. He hasn’t been having a lot of that in recent months.
"People have been talking about his form, signing his contract then clocking off, it’s rubbish, he just didn’t get chances, not chances like that [against Newcastle].
"We’ve seen him score chances like the second goal where he’s in the middle of the box because Arsenal created something, they haven’t been creating things.
"Now with Saka’s emergence, Emile Smith Rowe’s emergence, great play from Cedric [Soares], there’s always balls going into the box, chances being made, and he’ll come alive again."
