Auba - Up front or out wide? I really don't mind

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has mainly be stationed on the left of our attack under Mikel Arteta - often to great effect.

But many have been calling for him to play as a traditional centre forward through the middle, and he got his chance there against Leeds last weekend.

But where does our captain prefer to play?

"I play everywhere, I don't mind really, I really don't mind," Aubameyang told our official matchday programme. "Everyone knows where I prefer to play but this doesn't matter because I prefer to have many options than just one. 

"I want to help and I want to learn as well. Because you learn every day even if you are young or maybe older, but I'm still learning and I feel good everywhere.


From back to front! Auba's stunner at Fulham

"[You learn because] your movements are different if you play, for example, on the left. You have to play sometimes more in the pocket to try to connect with the midfield players. And it's maybe different with the striker position, as a No 9. It's completely different, sometimes you have to be wide, but when you are a striker you are more central and it's really different. 

"But I've learnt a lot of things since I've been playing on the left side. It gives me opportunities because a lot of defences are attracted by the No 9. Laca and Eddie are doing a great job and so they leave space for us sometimes to come and run in behind the defence. So of course it's helped me and I'm still learning as a left winger."
