Against Southampton, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ended a drought and Mikel Arteta hopes that leads to a hot streak.
The first open-play Premier League goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang since the season’s opening day could change their season “dramatically”, believes Mikel Arteta.
Ultimately, Arsenal continued to avoid suffering a record fifth consecutive home league loss, and Arteta claims that the goal of Aubameyang may be crucial to the outlook of the Gunners, ending the striker’s streak of 11 league games without an open-play goal.
“Hopefully it’s going to change everything dramatically and he’s going to start to score every game because this is what we need at the moment,” Arteta told reporters.
“We need the points, we need to score many more goals and to be more efficient when we have the chances. I think it’s going to make him really good.”
