Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must work on his finishing to save his Gunners career, David Seaman believes. The Gabon international was left on the bench for Monday’s 2-1 Premier League defeat to Everton. Yet that decision backfired with Mikel Arteta’s side slipping to a second loss in a row.

Arsenal decided to leave Aubameyang out of their starting XI for the match at Goodison Park.

But that decision backfired, with the Toffees scoring twice in the final 10 minutes to take all three points.

Aubameyang has, over the years, developed a reputation for being one of the deadliest forwards in world football.

But the goals have dried up this term, with the Gabon international scoring just four times in the Premier League.

Now, Seaman has had his say.

And the Arsenal legend feels Aubameyang can turn things around if he trains hard and works on his finishing.

“He needs to get out on that training field and really practice his finishing,” he told Sky Sports.

“And get confidence from training because he’s really lacking that when it comes to that final decision, that final finish.

“He missed one I think against Newcastle, quite an easy one, but we recovered from that.

“Then, last night, it wasn’t an easy chance but it’s a good chance.

“It’s a shame he’s going through what he does but all strikers do that, look at Harry Kane at Tottenham, one goal all season.

“And you’re thinking ‘woah what happened to Harry Kane’. With Aubameyang it’s just a confidence thing, we know he can do it and we’ve seen him do it in the past, we’re just waiting for that little boost.

“And hopefully he gets a two-foot tap-in and that brings his confidence back!”

Aubameyang’s numbers have started to dwindle.

The 32-year-old netted 31 and 29 times respectively during his first two full seasons at the Emirates.

But he struck just 15 times last term, sometimes falling out of favour with Arteta in the process.

Aubameyang was brought on with six minutes to go against Everton, though couldn’t make an impact.

And Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes trouble is brewing with the veteran, who remains the club’s captain.

“I think there will be a problem with Aubameyang off the back of the this game,” Neville said.

“I don’t think he’ll like the idea of Eddie Nketiah coming on before him. I don’t think he’ll like the idea of being a substitute, full stop.

“There’s always that little bit of a bug there between Arteta and Aubameyang.

“I know he’s the captain but he leaves him out and it just feels like something that’s a little bit awkward, and it’s going to cause a problem.

“I suspect, if Arteta could probably get money for Aubameyang and he could get someone else, they probably would.

“And I bet if Aubameyang could move on he probably would as well because it could maybe turn a little sour.”
