“It’s like he’s lost his super power” pundit savages Aubameyang after City loss

After netting a sensational hat-trick against Leeds United last weekend, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was back to his bad habits as he did little in Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City.

The striker failed to lead by example as Arsenal fell to yet another defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s side.

Jamie Redknapp watched as the former Borussia Dortmund man laboured for much of the game and claimed that he is past his best.

He says Auba could deliver some moments of magic as he did against Leeds, but Arsenal shouldn’t expect that to be consistent now.

Redknapp adds that the striker was an explosive player who ran past defenders when he first moved to the Emirates, but he has lost his superpower now.

On a positive note, he says that the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have stepped up to lead the way and need others to join them.

He told Sky Sports as quoted by Mirror Football: “Look at Aubameyang; Aubameyang is past his best. He’s going to have moments, he’s going to get hat-tricks.

“When I watch him sometimes, it’s like he’s lost his super power. You saw him run past people when he first came to the Premier League.

“I’d see him run past people at Dortmund. I’m seeing now, a player that looks like he’s going to get bullied every occasion. And he’s your leading light.

“The likes of [Bukayo] Saka and [Emile] Smith Rowe, they’re the ones leading the way. It’s the other players that I feel need to step up more.”

    This is not to defend Auba, but we cannot expect him to perform at his best when the supporting cast doesn’t turn up or changes constantly. Odegaard, the latest addition to the squad, will need time to learn and get familiar with the playing styles and preferences of his teammates. In this regard dropping or moving ESR from the 10 position was a mistake.

    Every fan of every club except Man City is saying “we need a striker”. Liverpool with a world class front line these past 3 seasons are now saying we need a striker. Man U with Cavani Martial Greenwood Rashford are saying we need a striker. Spurs with Son Kane Vinicius Bale and Bergwijn with the most successful manager in the League can’t win a game and are ‘crying’ out for a striker 🙂. Chelsea with Werner Zyyech Pulisic Havertz Giroud Abraham Hudson -Odoi an oil pipeline at the door and top ranked Manager scraped a draw at Southampton who lost their previous four games. Arsenal with Aubameyang Lacazette Pepe Martinelli +Saka are desperate for someone to bulge the onion bag. Yet dumbo David Moyes has his nobody squad in top 4!!! Football is not rocket science. It’s a lot harder. ☺😇😅.

    ESR cannot play every game. Don’t forget that this guy is injury prone.

    Since the arrival of Arteta, most senior players are not playing to their full capabilities. Why?

  5. Sandy says:

    Arteta hot the selection wrong

  6. Armoury says:

    By the time we realise that Arteta is the main problem at Arsenal, it’ll be too late. Arteta is buying lots of players but there’s no improvement in the team. After 25 matches, Arsenal is already 25 points adrift of the log leaders. It’s so bizarre

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      Everytime I see Everton and how they evolved under Anchelotti, I feel sorry and angry, that they choose Artera.

      He is a big mistake in my opinion.
      Yes, Auba seems to have lost his superpower, he is out of form.

    To be honest Arsenal was having a better ball then Man city they could win the Race, but the problem often facing Arsenal is that; Arsenal is lack of sharp, fast ,Confident and Moral ability strikers. just I want Auba and Nico be droped in favour of Martinelli and Balogan. i do not want to blame defenders / midfild but strikers. Arteta in order to bail out Arsenal he mustn use the young once. But the question is that is there any issue between Reiss Nelson and arteta or what is going on? cos that boy is fast, sharp and skillful he can push back the defenders.

    Bukayo Saka was as usual no complain about him at all. ViVa Viva Bukayo OooSaka.com.
