Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has sent a message to the Gunners supporters in the aftermath of the club’s frustrating 2-2 draw against Southampton at home.
The north London giants were eyeing a victory to end the recent frustration among the club’s faithful but that was clearly not the case as they could only salvage a last-minute draw.
Southampton clearly had the vast amount of clear-cut chances to put the game to bed in the second period and the Gunners were eventually lucky to come out of the game with one point on the board.
In reaction to the result, Aubameyang was reluctant to speak on the fan criticism but stated that the players are disappointed in the same way as the club’s supporters.
“I don’t know [if the criticism is fair at the moment], but the team is disappointed like the fans are as well. When we are playing, we are the first to be disappointed when it doesn’t work. We will try to keep fighting. I think we have the quality to come back and we have to fight,” he said.
While the result was disappointing, there were positives with the performances of a few players and Alexandre Lacazette particularly caught the eye with his match-saving brace.
The Frenchman had previously failed to score for seven games following his return from an ankle concern and the goals should enhance his confidence ahead of the congested festive schedule.
