Arsenal fans raised a brilliant point about Aubameyang during 3-0 Man City defeat

Arsenal were thrashed 3-0 by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday afternoon.

Sergio Aguero's delicate chip gave Pep Guardiola's side a 1-0 lead at half-time - and second half goals from Vincent Kompany and David Silva compounded Arsenal fans misery.

The Gunners were humiliated by Swedish minnows Ostersunds on Thursday night in the Europa League and they were completely outplayed at Wembley.

"Im struggling to come up for words now to describe this pattern for Arsenal," said Gary Neville on Sky Sports.

"I don't even like the football anymore. Liverpool play better, Tottenham play better - there's three or four teams that play better football than them now.

"This is a dark, dark day - the team have just not shown up."

Arsenal club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made his League Cup debut but it definitely did not go to plan.


The pacy Gabonese striker, who recently scored on his debut against Everton, was leading the line for Arsene Wenger's side once again.

However, Aubameyang struggled to make an impact on the game and it didn't go unnoticed that he was out-paced by the 31-year-old Kompany in the first half.

The 28-year-old former Borussia Dortmund star also missed a golden opportunity with the score at 0-0, shooting straight at Claudio Bravo from four yards out.

Alexandre Lacazette was signed for £52m in the summer but has thus far failed to become the top class centre forward Arsenal desperately crave.


The Frenchman is currently injured but plenty of Gooners on social media were raising an excellent point whilst watching Aubameyang struggle in an Arsenal shirt.

Arsenal fans make excellent Aubameyang point

Likely to miss out on the top four for the second consecutive season, it was yet another very frustrating afternoon for Arsenal supporters.

They were not criticising their new star signing on social media - but they did raise a noteworthy problem up front.

They're absolutely spot on.
