Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on from start to finish in Arsenal’s 3-0 home defeat to Manchester City on Thursday, but several awkward moments meant it wasn’t quite perfect.
The Gabon international who joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund for a club-record fee, capped his side’s mediocre performance with a penalty miss – after Ederson Moraes saved his strike.
Aubameyang may be spared for not converting his kick, but his tame performance did not save him from hostility from football fans online.

Shambolic doesn't quite cover it for Arsenal. What's also alarming is the three forwards behind Aubameyang are United rejects. A club of Arsenal's stature should not stoop to that.— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) March 1, 2018
Glad Aubameyang finally got his wish to sign for a top club— Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) March 1, 2018
How can you people say Arsenal started Phyno instead of Aubameyang against City? 😂😂😂— Doctor YazzY Olu (@Dr_Yazzy) March 1, 2018
People call Lacazette a 'Penalty Merchant' but these are the situations he would have buried that chance. I have said it before and I will say it again, Lacazette is a better finisher than Aubameyang.— jäń (@Jan14i) March 1, 2018
Arsenal fans thought they signed prime Henry when they got Aubameyang, they didn't know they were signing Ahmed Musa with nice hair 😂 😂— Khal•Kenshin (@la_OK3) March 1, 2018

Check the recent statistics 😂😂😂
Aubameyang is proving that it was absolutely childish & amature to slag off Lacazette. Both men are like Lions that aren't being fed and it's honestly making them look bad.— Dean. (@ArsenalNexus) March 1, 2018
