Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed our trip to Goodison due to a tight calf.
Mikel Arteta, while addressing the press after the game mentioned that he wasn’t certain about the captain’s return date.
“We want him back as quickly as possible,” he said. “He has a small strain and he will need a few days. I don’t know if it’s a week or two weeks, it will depend how the injury evolves.”
After a frustrating goal drought, Aubameyang found the net against Southampton. Many believed that was the spark he needed.
Going by the manager’s words, our captain is likely to miss out on the up coming run of fixtures. We face Manchester City in the Carabao cup, before playing Chelsea and Brighton to close the year.
