Unai Emery Comments On Shabby Aubameyang Display

It has not been a nice welcome for the new Arsenal manager with the sort of results that have hit him in our last two games.

The first was a 2-0 loss to reigning league champions Manchester City followed by last Saturday's late 3-2 loss at Stamford Bridge.

In the latter, the Gunners went behind in the first half, courtesy goals from Pedro and Morata but were able to come on level terms through Mhikitaryan and Nigerian wizkid Iwobi before the close of the half.

It is worthy to note despite the stunning comeback that the visitors could have done better. They would have gone ahead if not for the many chances they wasted.

One of the culprits on that day was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who we all know to be prolific in front of goal. On that occasion, no one actually knew what went wrong as the Gabonese failed to convert any of the opportunities that came his way.

It was a thing of worry to supporters but Emery has made it clear that he is not disturbed by the striker's misfiring during that clash.

While commending the team for their commitment, the Spanish stated that Auba's inability to score on that day isn't something strange. Maybe it was not his day after all. He hoped that he will get revived in subsequent games and score even in more complicated situations.

"The first half we created more chances to score - 2-2 is also maybe short for us, because we created more chances (than Chelsea)", the 46-year-old said.

"I was calm when I saw my team creating chances. Goal, no goal, we need to continue working.

"Today, with Auba, I know he can play. Maybe there's one moment where he misses three good chances, but another where they'll score three chances that are less clear. I am calm with that."
