Aubameyang Lost Form After Signing New Contract – Darren Bent

Gabonese striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubmeyang, has lost form since signing a new contract at his London-based, Arsenal, says former Tottenham forward Darren Bent.

Aubameyang reached a five-game goal drought for the first time since 2014 after Arsenal lost 1-0 to Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday night.

The 31-year-old last and only league goal came against Fulham on opening day and Bent thinks he is not having the best time in Mikel Arteta’s team.

“There has been a drop-off,” Bent said on Talk Sport.

“You look at his form in the semi-final and the final of the FA Cup last season, the Community Shield and his performance against Fulham – he was arguably one of the best strikers in the Premier League, probably the best.

“But since he signed that new contract, it might be a coincidence, but he’s looked a shadow of himself.

“He’s missed big opportunities in games, he’s not working with the same intensity, he doesn’t look like he’s enjoying it as much.

“Listen, confidence is massive in a striker. It is with any player, but particularly with a centre-forward, when you’re used to scoring as many goals as he is and then you suddenly stop scoring, it can be a little bit of a concern.

“But I think it’s even the work rate as well.

“You remember, he was putting shifts up and down, he was all over the place, but he’s been nowhere near that level recently.”

Aubameyang committed his future to the Emirates Stadium outfit last month in a deal that earns him around £250,000 per week at the club.

He will be expected to play a part when the Gunners host Dundalk for their next European fixture on Thursday before they battle Manchester United in the Premier League on November 1.
