Unai Emery admits Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang needs to rediscover his confidence but has backed the Arsenal forward to hit the goal trail before too long.
The Gabon international missed two glorious chances during last weekend’s 3-2 defeat at Chelsea, which condemned the Gunners to back-to-back defeats in Emery’s first two games in charge.
Aubameyang, 29, is Arsenal’s record signing having joined from Borussia Dortmund in January and Emery feels the striker requires a boost in confidence to start scoring goals this season.
“Aubameyang needs to find the confidence, then to score and score another,” he said.
“The strikers, they need, I know a lot of strikers in my career and it’s about the moment, they need (to be in) the moment, and he’s the same.
“But I’m sure now that Aubameyang, (Alexandre) Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, they will score more goals in here, for us, in Arsenal.”
