Arsenal might have to be dealing with their defensive issues as Aubameyang pinpoints Gunners’ faults.
Arsenal failed to leave the pitch with all three points as defensive lapses had them share points with Watford despite first half double from Aubameyang.
Pierre Aubameyang carefully secured the 3 points for his team in the first half after netting the second goal of the game, but just like he said, his side gifted goals to the opposition.
Sokratis and David Luiz are to be held responsible for these lapses despite the striker refused to point out the players responsible for these lapses.
Sokratis lost the ball to Gerard Deulofeu while trying to play out defense. Tom Cleverley was strategically positioned for a finish he completed upon receiving the pass from Deulofeu.
David Luiz joined the ‘blame-list’ as he cheaply gave away a penalty to the winless Watford, which helped Roberto Pereyra push his side back into the game late at the 81st minute.
“Obviously we didn’t expect that [the comeback],” the 30-year-old told Canal Plus .
“We knew that they were going to try and come back with good intentions, of the kind they demonstrated in the second half.
“Sadly, we were not able to deal with them well. I feel like we are literally giving goals to the opposition, it is up to us to progress in that respect.” Aubameyang continued.
“I don’t want to accuse anyone, you could say that us the attackers could have killed the game off and score a third goal, so I am not going to say it is someone’s fault,” he said.
Emery hopes his side quickly get passed their defensive flaws as they look to battle Eintracht Frankfurt for another Europa League campaign.
“It is a shame to concede goals like we did… I think it [Alexandre Lacazette’s absence through injury] affects us.
“We know very well that he brings us so much in these sorts of games.”
