Arsenal Legend Martin Keown has urged Mikel Arteta to drop the club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang following his poor performance against Liverpool.
The Arsenal skipper Aubameyang has struggled with poor form in recent weeks. And following another shambolic performance in the 0 – 3 home loss to Liverpool at the weekend where he failed to make any impact in the game, Keown feel its time for Arteta to drop him to the bench.
Martin Keown on Aubameyang: “Should Arteta not be dropping him for performing as poorly as he did against Liverpool? If he sticks with him, he risks losing the respect of the group”
“It’s time to bring in Gabriel Martinelli. He is too good to be sitting on the bench. His teammates see him in training & know what he can do. They will be baffled by his continued absence. I know I am”
Arsenal will be back in action on Thursday night when they take on Slavia Praque in the UEFA Europa league Quater finals at home.
