Arsenal star ​Aubameyang plays down importance of breaking goal drought

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang played down the importance of scoring against Southampton.

The Gabon striker has struggled for goals this season, but found the back of the net to equalise against the Saints in a 1-1 home draw.

While the Gunners did not claim all three points, they did end their run of losses.

Asked about the goal, Aubameyang told reporters post-game: "Tonight is not about my goal or me, it's about the team.

"As I said, we need points so it doesn't matter if I scored.

"For the moment, the most important thing to do is win games and get points."
