Arsenal stars leave training as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang concedes some players 'are a bit resigned' following 3-0 home defeat to Manchester City




Arsenal players left training on Friday following their 3-0 home defeat by Manchester City on Thursday night. Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has conceded some Arsenal players 'are a bit resigned' after the heavy defeat at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger's side were beaten by the same scoreline by City as they were last Sunday in the Carabao Cup final. January signings Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were seen leaving their London Colney training base in their cars. Jack Wilshere, Granit Xhaka, Hector Bellerin and Petr Cech, who is still searching for his 200th Premier League clean sheet, were also seen leaving on Friday. Aubameyang completed his club-record £56million move to Arsenal in January on deadline day. He scored on his debut in Arsenal's 5-1 win over Everton but he has not added to that goal since and missed a penalty against City early in the second half.
'There is a lot of disappointment. We are not happy with our displays either tonight or Sunday,' he told French TV station SFR. 'We could not score that goal that could have pushed us on. City play very well too. The way they play, they are one of the best teams in the world. 'Obviously it is not easy when you cannot score a goal to give us extra energy. There are maybe some players who are a bit resigned.'

Following the defeat the Gunners are 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in sixth in the Premier League. 'I think obviously the Europa League is a good option to qualify for the Champions League. Now the route is not easy – 10 points from fourth place,' Aubameyang said. 'It is going to be very hard but he will fight till the end. The championship is not finished – this is the Premier League, anything can happen.'
