Arsenal look increasingly likely to miss out on Champions League football again as they languish in sixth place.


Arsenal could rescue their season by winning the Europa League, although Aubameyang is cup-tied in the competition. The Gabon star has shown his predatory instinct with six goals in his opening seven games for Arsenal. When asked whether Wenger deserves the criticism he receives, Aubameyang said he thinks it's unjustified.


"It's a difficult question," said the 28-year-old on the negativity directed at his boss. "Sometimes I think it's a bit unfair. We're playing better in these last games and I hope the people can see this." Aubameyang went on to say that he hopes to play more Premier League games alongside fellow forward Alexandre Lacazette. The former Borussia Dortmund hitman says the duo complement each other, despite once being enemies during their time in France.


He added: "I hope we will have the opportunity to play together. It's something I said when I first arrived that I hoped to play with him. We have different styles, but I think they're styles that complement each other - he's a very good player and a very kind person. We were once rivals in our days in France, but we're now friends and I hope we can play well together and score lots of goals."
