ARSENAL legend Martin Keown was not impressed with Pierre-Emerickg Aubameyang after his performance against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday night. Arsenal were held to a disappointing goalless draw at home to sbo128 Sporting in the Europa League. The point means the Gunners have qualified for the knockout stages, but a serious injury to Danny Welbeck marred the match at the Emirates. The England forward was stretchered off in the first half after receiving several minutes of treatment to his leg. And Keown believes Aubameyang, who came on as a substitute for Welbeck, was affected by the injury. The Gabon international missed a number of chances in the second half to get sbo128 the winner for his side.
“Aubameyang really let them down a little bit in front of goal,” Keown said on BT Sport.
“He’s a player I rate really very highly, he was taken off against Liverpool and didn’t seem happy with that.
“And I think tonight, with the injury, it caught him out more than anybody else.
“He wasn’t ready mentally and I think on another night he would have put these chances away.
“(Henrikh) Mkhitaryan is a player sbo128 that really looks out for him, they seem to have this telepathic link up.
“He knows this ball is coming and when you see this from the other angle, this should be a goal.”
Keown says Aubameyang is a similar player to Arsenal great Thierry Henry.
