Martin Keown alleges that Mikel Arteta has fallen out of love with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Martin Keown reckons Mikel Arteta does not believe in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to fix Arsenal's issues today.

The club captain was dropped to the bench for Arsenal's 2-1 defeat versus Everton last time out as Alexandre Lacazette led the line.

Eyebrows were raised in the event that in the lasts Arsenal were trying to find an objective and Arteta relied on Eddie Nketiah off the bench ahead of bringing Aubameyang on with simply a couple of minutes delegated play.

Aubameyang has actually scored simply 4 league objectives this season with his last being available in mid October and previous Gunner Keown isn't persuaded Arteta wishes to put his rely on the 32-year-old any longer.

' He's fallen out of love with the gamer, he does not rather believe in him,' in a post sighted by

' OK, you have actually offered him a brand-new agreement 6 months into his period as supervisor when they won the FA Cup which's all well and good, however ever since he hasn't carried out in the same way.

' The gamer is at a loss of kind and in those minutes, if I take a look at it from the gamer's perspective, you desire that assistance from the supervisor and desire somebody to wait you.

' You definitely anticipate, if you have actually been dropped, to come on in a video game of high significance.'

Regardless of Aubameyang's barren spell in front of objective, Keown feels the striker needs to have begun in the journey to Goodison Park.

' I do think that Aubameyang needs to have begun vs Everton and I'm looking for the reasoning from the supervisor,' Keown continued. 'Personally, I would play him.

' It ends up being an issue when you lose video games.

' They have actually lost the last 3 away video games, and if they were winning those video games you 'd need to state this is fantastic management however when they do not win those video games, that's when the enigma come.

' It looks then as though the supervisor does not rather understand the XI he can actually rely on and trust.'

Every eyes will be on Arteta's group choice when the Gunners host Southampton this mid-day.
