In the absence of Aubameyang, manager Unai Emery chose to send Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette through the middle with Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan who provide support in large areas.

The procedure was successful and Arsenal is hopeful that they can bring Aubvameyang back to the match day for the weekend match against Leicester.

After a victory for rivals Tottenham on Tuesday night, Arsenal needed a big result in the absence of Aubameyang to strengthen their bid for a top four, but they made the worst possible start when they were left behind for a free kick by Ruben Neves.
