Unai Emery has warned Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang that he still has plenty of room for improvement at Arsenal.

The Gabon attacker is getting used to life at the north London club after arriving from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window last season.

Aubameyang and his team-mates are now also getting used to things under new boss Emery after his appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

The 29-year-old will be hoping to help fire Arsenal towards a top-four finish in the Premier League this season as the north London side aim to try and secure Champions League qualification for the first time in two years.

Aubameyang has scored three goals in all competitions so far this season for the Gunners, but Emery still thinks that there is plenty of room for improvement from the striker.

Speaking at a news conference last week, Emery said: “We have started playing with our style with Aubameyang,” Emery said. “He needs also confidence, but he needs to continue finding his best performance.

“I also have a lot of confidence in Lacazette, but also Welbeck and Nketiah. They are our strikers.

“I am going to work with them and give them my confidence and our work is to do one collective work to give them the best possibilities in the attacking moments to score.

“The players played like we want [against Vorskla] and we take more minutes and Sunday, I think, we have a big range of options to choose the best first 11. I think we also have players to help them after the start of the match.

“I am very happy to have these strikers for us.”

Arsenal are now preparing to welcome Everton to The Emirates in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they aim to try and make it four wins in a row in the top flight.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph under Arsene Wenger in the 2003-04 campaign.
