Its not like before auba was 25-30 goals strikers a season him gone downhill like that don't help because our team don't have replacement other than u23 kids. I don't want to say Arteta problem because if we still have not created since auba exiled I'd agree with you but we haven't
Yeah I fully agree that Auba isn't really the same as he was when he was scoring 20+ goals a season, for whatever reason that may be.
And whilst we did look better and started creating for a bit with Lacazette as striker, I think the last few games prove that we still have a bit of an issue creating and a big problem imo is variety.
I didn't really want to bring the cup games into it as in my mind they don't really matter this season (league and top 4 is the main goal) but we looked flat against Notthingham, Liverpool in the 2nd leg (bar the first 20 minutes) and on the whole we looked flat against bottom of the league Burnley.
Auba isn't scoring like he was before but I think having him as an option might've helped in creating enough variety that we get a goal instead of struggling.
