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.
