Aubameyang reveals his feelings for Wembley ahead of Arsenal’s encounter with Tottenham

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has spoken of his feelings of the Wembley Stadium ahead of Arsenal’s massive Premier League showdown with Tottenham Hotspur

    Currently sitting fourth in the table, the Gunners travel to Wembley to take on the London rivals obliged to pick up all three points.

    Unai Emery’s men seem to have got back to the right track as they come into this meeting off the back of three successive victories across all competitions.

    Well aware of the gravity of this encounter, Aubameyang has tried to shrug off the pressure, knowing he is going to play at the stadium where he is yet to find the back of the net.

    Talking to the BT Sport cameras, the 29-year-old has said he ‘hates’ the “The Home of Football” for his own failures on his previous visits to this venue.

    “I hate Wembley, I swear,” he admitted.

    “I’m sorry. It’s a great stadium, lovely stadium, but I never won there, and I never score.

    “I score one maybe, but it was offside. So yeah, I hate to play there, but I have to change this routine.”

    The captain of the Gabonese national team is expected to spearhead Arsenal attack alongside Alexandre Lacazette as the Gunners hope they can bring a two-game road losing run against Tottenham to an end.

    Augbameyang’s goalscoring tally of 16 goals scored in 28 Premier League fixtures puts him third on the scoring leaderboard, as he now looks to end a goal drought at the biggest stadium in England.
