Aubameyang has lost his superpowers – Redknapp says after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to City




Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Redknapp, has claimed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is “past his best” and feels the Arsenal captain has “lost his superpower”.

Aubameyang endured a tough afternoon in their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

The 31-year-old failed to register a single shot on goal, as he was closely marshalled by John Stones and Ruben Dias.

The Gabon striker fared better last weekend, scoring a hat-trick in Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Leeds, but his form has been patchy over the course of the season and Redknapp feels age is catching up with him.

“Aubameyang is past his best. He’s going to have moments; he’s going to get hat-tricks. But when I watch him sometimes, it’s like he’s lost his superpower.

“I saw him run past people when he first came to the Premier League. I saw him run past people at Dortmund. Now I’m seeing a player who looks like he’s going to get bullied.

“He’s your leading light, but the likes of [Bukayo] Saka and [Emile] Smith Rowe, they’re the ones leading the way,” Redknapp said.
