PIERRE-EMERICK Aubameyang has defiantly insisted Arsenal will ‘shock the world’.

The Gunners have struggled badly for goals this season, including the normally prolific Aubameyang, but the striker believes this will soon change.

Aubameyang told Afrique Sport: “The biggest problem the club is facing right now is the lack of goals, but the manager and the rest of the players are trying to overcome this problem.

“Even though the results have not been good recently, we still hope that in the near future everything will be fine and we will surprise the world. 

“We have the players that will take us to the level we want to get to.”

Aubameyang has enjoyed a prolific career and netted 22 goals in 36 Premier League matches last season.

But the 31-year-old has failed to hit those heights during the opening months of this campaign, with just two goals in nine games.

Mikel Arteta has focused on improving Arsenal’s defence but it appears to have come at the expense of their misfiring attack.

The Gunners have only scored nine goals in as many Premier League games this season – with three of those coming on the opening day at Fulham.


Arsenal have gone seven hours and 56 minutes since their last league goal from open play.

And the Gunners have drawn a blank in four of their last five league outings.

But captain Aubameyang remains convinced Arsenal will rediscover the form which led them to last season’s FA Cup triumph.
