Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has called on his players to “step up” and fill the goalscoring void left by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s absence after a call for the Football Association to review his three-match ban failed.

The Gunners were hopeful to have Aubameyang available sooner than the Premier League trip to Burnley at the start of February after he was dismissed in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.

The sheer reliance on Aubameyang’s goals are borne out in the statistics, with the former Borussia Dortmund man hitting 14 of Arsenal’s 29 Premier League goals this season and all-but three of their goals away from the Emirates Stadium.

Crystal Palace and Arsenal shared a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park, but who were the players who stood out and failed to impress in the early Premier League kick-off?

Asked about a potential move for the England international, Arteta said: “No, no truth at all.

“Players have to step up,” Arteta replied when asked if the team will be worse without their suspended captain.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines Arsenal pleaded for mitigation on the resulting three-match ban but the initial suspension stands – meaning the Gabon international will miss Saturday’s visit of Sheffield United, a London derby at Chelsea and then the FA Cup fourth-round clash at Bournemouth.
