Auba: We have to raise the level

by Koolkola

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says Arsenal’s players need to get together and have an honest conversation following a third consecutive defeat in the Premier League.

While losing to City wasn’t unexpected, the 5-0 scoreline and the red card picked up by Granit Xhaka made for a particularly brutal afternoon at the Etihad.

After the match, Auba talked to BT Sport

On what happened…

I just blame us as a team because today it wasn’t enough. Against City, 11 versus 11, you have to take risks and you have to brave on the ball, we weren’t today. After the red card, it was a completely different game. As I said, it’s not enough and everyone has to raise the level, look at ourselves in the mirror, work as a team and stick together. This is the only way to go forward.

On needing commitment and courage…

Exactly. We have to play with courage. In this type of game, you have to play with everything. As I said, you have to take risks. We just didn’t do enough today. That’s it.

On how Arsenal get through this…

Definitely, we have to talk between us players. This is now important because we are Arsenal. We need pride, we have to say the truth between each other, be honest and raise the level.

On patience being difficult given the results…

For sure, it’s going to be difficult. As I said, we are a team. We have to stick together in these moments and as senior players, we have to show the way as well to the young players. I know it’s not going to be easy but we’ll try to give our best.
