Arsenal striker Aubameyang hints at frustration over Emery substitution

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hinted at frustration after their draw at Crystal Palace.

Despite getting on the scoresheet, the Gabon international was taken off in the 78th minute as Aaron Ramsey entered the fray, with the game ending 2-2 after Luka Milivojevic scored his second penalty of the game for Palace.

After Aubameyang's goal the official Arsenal twitter account posted a notable statistic, which detailed that the attacker has scored with his last six shots on target in the Premier League.

One fan responded to the tweet by questioning why, in such circumstances, head coach Unai Emery elected to take Aubameyang off – @rajamudaikhsan wrote: 'Then why are you replacing him? Why not let him score again?'

Aubameyang, somewhat controversially, retweeted the tweet, perhaps expressing his frustration at being taken off.
