Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has acknowledged that his side will have to be on top of their game if they are to stand a chance against arch-rivals, Tottenham on Sunday.
The Gunners are currently on their worst ever start to a Premier League season with five losses and 13 points from 10 games, placed 14th on the log and on a bounce of three consecutive matches without win.
Skipper Aubameyang believes a North London derby triumph may kickstart Arsenal’s season, while admitting it’ll be a very tough one for the Gunners.
“I can’t wait anymore,” he told Arsenal Media. “I think this is the game that we have to understand is going to be the turning point for us for this season. What’s better than the derby?
“I think if we win this game, everyone is going to maybe change their mindset and yes, as I said it’s going to be the turning point of the season, and there’s no better game than a derby to do it.
“It’s going to lift everyone if we win this game. We know it’s going to be a tough game, they are playing well at the moment to tell the truth, but we have to care about our game, how we want to play the game, so it’s all about us if we want it or not.
“So we are just waiting for this game and we are going to try to give everything to win this game and change the situation.”
The North Londoners are on the brink of falling eleven points shy of Tottenham should they lose on Sunday, with Aubameyang enduring a mounting goal drought since converting a penalty at Old Trafford, with just two goals registered this campaign.
