Keown: Time for Arsenal to axe Aubameyang for Martinelli

Arsenal title winner Martin Keown has called for captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to be DROPPED.

Aubameyang put in a dire performance as the Gunners were humbled 3-0 by Liverpool on Saturday. And Keown believes the Gabon forward must be replaced by Gabriel Martinelli, who has remained on the bench recently.

"Arteta has a big decision to make on his captain," he told the Daily Mail.

"He set an example by dropping Aubameyang for the north London derby recently. Aubameyang was supposed to start against Spurs but turned up late and was pulled.

"Should Arteta not be dropping him for performing as poorly as he did against Liverpool? If he sticks with him, he risks losing the respect of the group.

"It's time to bring in 19-year-old Gabriel Martinelli. He is too good to be sitting on the bench."
