STATS SHOCKER: The demise of Arsenal captain Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's form continues to nosedive since signing his new contract at Arsenal.

Aubameyang continues to disappoint since signing his new £350,000-a-week contract at Arsenal.

The 31-year-old is now without a goal in five Premier League games after he drew a blank in the 1-0 defeat against Leicester on Sunday.

His last strike in the top-flight came in the season-opening win against Fulham at Craven Cottage – before he put pen to paper on his lucrative deal.

Prior to his new deal, the ex-Borussia Dortmund striker averaged 2.8 shots per game, but it is now down to just one.

And his shots on target have dropped from 1.3 to 0.6, with his touches in the opposition box now at 2.4 every match from 4.8.
