Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has tender an apology to Arsenal supporters following their 3-0 defeats to Manchester City on Wednesday evening.
Manchester City emerged 3-0 victory over Arsenal in front of empty stands as Pep Guardiola comfortably overcame former assistant Mikel Arteta, who saw substitute Luiz unravel as he gave away goals either side of half-time and got sent off.
Winger Raheem Sterling put City ahead with thumping effort before half-time after a mistake by David Luiz.
Arsenal, meanwhile, failed to register a shot on target for the first time in the Premier League this season.
And the result has dented Mikel Arteta’s side hopes of finishing in the top four and securing a place in next season’s Champions League.
Aubameyang clocks 31 on Thursday and after being wished a happy birthday by Arsenal Fan TV, the Gabon international took the opportunity to apologize for the team’s performance against Pep Guardiola’s men.
Aubameyang’s reply to AFTV’s birthday message read: ‘Thanks and sorry for the yesterday guys’.
Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta admits he is keen to move on quickly following Arsenal’s defeat.
‘I want to delete the game from the hard drive,’ the Arsenal boss told BBC Sport.
‘It’s a lot of things that happened and there’s no point taking things from this game.
‘Just delete it and start preparing tomorrow for the game against Brighton.’
