Why Arsenal Lost To Manchester City - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed why his team lost 2-0 to Manchester City on Sunday.

Aubameyang believes poor finishing was a major factor in the defeat.

Although, Man City outplayed the Gunners for most of the match, Arsenal had chances to put pressure on the Citizens.

However, Hector Bellerin’s effort was well saved by Ederson and Alexandre Lacazette failed to hit the target from a promising position.

While Aubameyang was isolated for much of the match as playmakers Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil failed to influence the game.

And Aubameyang feels a “lack of character” at the start of the match cost Arsenal.

"We created some chances but unfortunately we lacked efficiency up front,” he told ESPN.

“We will have to work on this. We have tobe more clinical in our last pass and the finishing.

"We knew it was never going to be easy against a team like Manchester City for the first game of the season. We knew what to expect.

“We didn't start well. We lacked a bit of character at the beginning of the game. In the second half, it was a bit better.

"I still think there were positives in our performance today [Sunday].

“I thought the way we pressed, especially in the second half was interesting.

“That's how we caused problems to City and created chances in the second half.

"It is the way we have to play this season. City are City.

“But if we play like this against the other teams in the league, we have a chance.

“We will have to put the same intensity and desire through the whole season."
