Iwobi Benched, Aubameyang Bags Brace As Arsenal Ease Past Stoke

  • Jack Wilshere David Ospina and Danny Welbeck start for Arsenal against Stoke

Aubameyang would add a lovely second 11 minutes later, before substitute Alexandre Lacazette's penalty after a barge by Badou Ndiaye in the box gave the scoreline a gloss that had not looked likely at half-time when Arsenal were booed off.

The Gunners remain off the pace in the race for a top-four finish so a return to the Champions League appears to only be attainable by winning the Europa League. We needed to get the three points, move on and keep the momentum going. But the result left both clubs in the same positions in the Premier League table, with Arsenal sixth and Stoke second bottom.

Eriksen's equalizer came in first-half stoppage time - a powerful, swerving strike from 25 yards. With the Potters desperately needing three points in their battle against relegation, they succumbed to a 3-0 loss at the Emirates.

There were times when the Emirates appeared nearly half empty, though the fans that did show up were treated to a 3-0 victory over Paul Lamber's relegation battlers; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice - once from the penalty spot - before Alexandre Lacazette rounded off the victory with a spot kick of his own.

Martins Indi revealed after the game he spoke to Pawson after the decision to award the first penalty to the hosts.

"Especially as well, we play before a big game, so the mind is maybe not completely there", Wenger said.

The Gabon global could have, and many believe should have, claimed the penalty for himself and claimed his first hat-trick in the red-and-white of Arsenal.

"I don't think they're a team in decline", added Lambert. There are doubts over the fitness of Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette, but the latter is highly expected to start after facing Crystal Palace this past weekend. Aubameyang later explained the reason for giving away the penalty and how the penalty would be "good for his confidence", as Lacazette had just returned from an injury. The weight of these ingredients, I don't know.

"I've seen VAR work in Germany", he said. And we don't have a championship to fight for.

"He made a mistake there, I went in the dressing room after the game and I asked him what his opinion was".
