Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said he is not surprised that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is facing questions over his form and believes the Gabon international must deal with the pressure that comes from being a “big player”.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit a career low in defeat to Leicester City on Sunday.

The Mirror reports Aubameyang has gone five games without scoring for the first time in his Arsenal career following the Gunners’ loss to Leicester.

The striker notched on the opening day of the season at Fulham but has drawn blanks since then.

Aubameyang’s last five game drought came in 2014 when he was playing for Borussia Dortmund.

His form in front of goal will be of mounting concern, especially since the Gabonese star signed a lucrative new deal in the summer.
