Arsenal should sell Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to make room for young partner for Martinelli, says Gunners fan

arsenal have managed to move on the players holding up their progress so far and pierre-emerick aubameyang and alexandre lacazette should be next.

 

that’s the view of one fan, who stressed to ohmyarsenal he doesn’t wasn’t want the club’s best strikers sold immediately, but that it will have to happen sooner rather than later.

Mesut Ozil, Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi have all made way for new recruits to come in and George the Gooner told the Sports Bar he would happily see the back of Aubameyang and Lacazette next if it meant signing a ‘nice, new striker’.

 

Aubameyang has scored just six goals since signing a new long-term contract last September, while Lacazette is out of contract at the end of next season.

 

“I really, really don’t like [Granit] Xhaka. I think he’s had great games this season, but he will cost us points at some point this season like he does every time.

 

“It’s the same with David Luiz. I’m happy that we’ve got rid of Mustafi and other players, but we’ve still got a couple bad eggs left that we need to get out.

 

“I know this is going to stir a debate, but in attack I’d definitely sell Lacazette and Aubameyang in the next year or two, cash in now while we can.

 

“I’d cash in on those two, and with that money, get a nice, new striker with [Gabriel] Martinelli also blending in.

Someone that’s young and raring to go and spend big bucks on him.”

 

Lacazette, who is Arsenal’s top scorer with 10 goals in all competitions this season, has been linked with moves to Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in recent weeks.

 

Meanwhile, Aubameyang made his first Arsenal appearance in four matches when he came off the bench in Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves.

 

The Gunners captain had been absent due to his mother’s health condition, which has since improved.

English FA explains why Arsenal were denied penalty against Burnley

Published

on

The Premier League has claimed that Arsenal were denied a penalty against Burnley because Erik Pieters was in ‘close proximity’ to Nicolas Pepe.

The Gunners were forced to settle for a point at Turf Moor after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s early opener was cancelled out by Chris Wood, who benefitted from a huge mistake by Granit Xhaka.

However, Arsenal felt aggrieved in the 75th minute when Pepe’s touch inside Burnley’s box led the ball to hit Pieters’ outstretched arm, but Mikel Arteta’s side were not awarded a penalty following a VAR review.

Earlier this week, Fulham were involved in a similar incident as Mario Lemina was penalised for handball in the build-up to their disallowed goal against Tottenham.

But in a statement after the game, the Premier League clarified why Arsenal were not given the decision.

‘The ball has hit him from close proximity and he’s had no time to react,’ said the statement. ‘It wasn’t given on-field and the VAR didn’t think it was a clear error.’

 

Arteta, meanwhile, was left in no doubt that his side should have been awarded a penalty. ‘Absolutely,’ the Arsenal manager said after the game.

 ‘I think it is obvious and clear. I think there is no debate about that. ‘If that’s not a penalty, then someone will explain what a penalty is in this league.’

Match Facts: Burnley 1 vs 1 Arsenal

Published

on

Granit Xhaka gifted Burnley an equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal, in a match which also saw Erik Pieters’ red card and an Arsenal penalty overturned by VAR.

 

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang put Arsenal in control with an early finish that snuck through the grasp of Nick Pope (6). However, with Arsenal cruising and Burnley struggling, Xhaka inexplicably decided to play a pass across his own six-yard box which deflected off Chris Wood’s hip and into the unguarded net (39).

The game seemed to be meandering towards an uneventful conclusion but then sparked into life in the final 10 minutes.

 

Arsenal felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Pieters looked to have handled in the area but VAR did not deem it a clear and obvious error. Pieters – in the thick of the action – was then dismissed by referee Andre Marriner and a penalty was awarded when the defender deflected a Nicolas Pepe effort onto the crossbar. However, VAR showed that the block had come off his shoulder and Burnley had a reprieve.

Arsenal still managed to create one last chance in injury-time but Dani Ceballos curled an effort off the foot of the post as Burnley managed to hold on.
