Aubameyang using captaincy to restore Arsenal confidence

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says he has been trying to raise the spirits of his teammates.

Sunday's draw with Norwich City extended the Gunners' winless run to eight games.

But Aubameyang is doing his best to raise confidence in the dressing room.

"I try to speak to the guys," he said. "To give them all my positivity. As always I try to be an example, working hard.

"We have tried to find more confidence in winning games. We try our best.

"We have to maybe be cleverer in the transition, maybe make some fouls. That's part of the game to not concede goals."
