Mikel Arteta is unconcerned by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s slow start in front of goal for Arsenal this season.

Gabon striker Aubameyang has scored just a solitary goal in five appearances Premier League for the Gunners so far this season.

The 31-year-old was Arsenal’s top scorer in the previous campaign with 29 goals in all competitions and signed a lucrative new three-year deal in September.

However, speaking at a news conference on the eve of Arsenal’s Europa League Group B clash with Rapid Vienna, Arteta claimed he is not worried about Aubameyang’s profligacy.

“With all the strikers if you ask when they don’t score for two or three games if there are concerns, in my opinion the performance was not a cause of this,” Arteta said. “He could have scored again on Saturday in a one-vs-one situation that normally he does. It’s trying to get in better positions as frequently as we can to try to give him the best possible chance.”

Thursday’s fixture will be the first meeting between Rapid Vienna and Arsenal, with the Gunners’ last facing Austrian opponents in the 1991-92 European Cup where they beat Austria Wien 6-1 at home before losing 1-0 on the road.

Arsenal are taking part in the Europa League for a fourth straight season, having reached the semi-final in 2017-18, the final in 2018-19 and the last 32 in 2019-20. (Goal)
