Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spoke to Canal Plus following Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Watford yesterday, and while refusing to point fingers at individuals, bemoaned the mistakes which handed the home side a point.
The Gunners had been 2-0 up at half-time thanks to the striker’s goals, but the second half was an embarrassment and in the end we were lucky to come away with a point.
The 30 year old’s frustration was evident when asked to reflect on the two points dropped and the overall performance.
“Obviously we didn’t expect that,” he said.
“We knew that they were going to try and come back with good intentions, of the kind they demonstrated in the second half. Sadly, we were not able to deal with them well.
“I feel like we are literally giving goals to the opposition, it is up to us to progress in that respect
“I don’t want to accuse anyone, you could say that us the attackers could have killed the game off and score a third goal, so I am not going to say it is someone’s fault.
“It is a shame to concede goals like we did.”
Auba was also asked about the loss of Alexandre Lacazette, who has been ruled out until next month because of an ongoing ankle injury.
“I think it affects us,” he sighed. “We know very well that he brings us so much in these sorts of games.”
