Alan Shearer has told Amazon Prime that he thinks Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will be frustrated with Freddie Ljungberg’s decision to play him down the wing.

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion this evening, after putting in an absolutely horrendous display.

Aside from a brief period after half-time, Arsenal were dire, and Brighton thoroughly deserved their victory.

 

Aubameyang, who has so often been the Gunners saviour, was ineffective in the contest, after being stationed in a wide role.

And Shearer said: “In terms of Aubameyang, I’m pretty sure he’ll be frustrated at having to play that position. I’m certain he’d have preferred to play down the middle.”

The full-time whistle was greeted with boos from a frustrated Emirates Stadium crowd.

Sacking Unai Emery has failed to spark a reaction in Arsenal’s team, with their existing problems still on display.

Arsenal’s defeat to Brighton has left them sitting in 10th place in the Premier League table, which is a major disappointment for the North London side.
