Premier League: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang confident of ending poor run 

  • Arsenal skipper is confident of ending poor run of lack of goals 
  • The Gabonese international has had an impressive spell at Arsenal but has seen a lack of goals 
  • Aubameyang has only scored just three goals in 15 Premier League appearances.

Arsenal skipper Pierre Aubameyang is confident that he can turn around his poor start to the season that has coincided with the team’s dismal performances. 

Aubameyang has been lethal in front of goal for much of his time in England but has lost his scoring touch in recent months, netting just three goals in 15 Premier League appearances.

But an FA Cup goal against Newcastle at the weekend will have boosted his confidence and he firmly believes he can get back to his best, having been drained at the start of the campaign from last season’s exploits.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Aubameyang said:

‘From the beginning of this season I was struggling a lot but I think this is part of football,’

‘We gave a lot at the end of the season to win the FA Cup and to qualify for the Europa League because it was really important for the club.

‘Sometimes you have ups and downs and you have to manage as best you can. I tried my best and until now it was not the best performance from me.

‘I’m still positive. I think I can turn this around.’
