Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made his first comments after missing Arsenal against Sheffield United.
It’s been a mixed month for the Gunners captain.

It was a surprise omission from the starting XI against Tottenham Hotspur on March 14, with manager Mikel Arteta admitting the 31-year-old was in line to start ahead of a disciplinary issue which was quickly resolved.

Aubameyang was restored to the lineup for the Europa League’s last 16 home game return leg against Olympiacos days later and retained his spot for the games against West Ham United and Liverpool on either side of the break. international.

However, he was substituted in the last two games and was dropped for Thursday night’s 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague.

That said, he did have an impact on the bench as he pushed Nicolas Pepe to finally break the deadlock at Emirates Stadium, only to see the team concede late.

And ahead of Arsenal’s return to the Premier League, it was confirmed that Aubameyang did not make it to Bramall Lane due to illness.

« David [Luiz] is injured, ”Arteta told BT Sport. »Kieran [Tierney] is injured, Auba is ill, Martin [Odegaard] is injured and Emile [Smith Rowe] is injured, so they’re all out.

“We were going to make changes anyway, but we’ve lost some very important players in the last few weeks. “

Whether Aubameyang recovers in time for next week’s Europa League quarter-final second leg against Slavia Prague remains to be seen, but he remains optimistic.

“Gutted, I can’t be there with the team tonight, but I hope to be back healthy on Thursday! He wrote on Instagram.

“Let’s go boys !! @arsenal “

In Aubameyang’s absence, Arteta kept faith in Lacazette in the role of center-forward.

And the Spaniard was rewarded by the Frenchman who broke the deadlock just after the half hour with a simple finish to round off a smooth passing stroke, then another goal in the second half.

It’s now 15 goals in all competitions for Lacazette, which puts him above Aubameyang as Arsenal’s top scorer this season.
