Jamie Redknapp thinks Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is now “past his best” and thinks he looks like “he’ll get bullied on every occasion”. The Gabon international has only managed eight goals in the Premier League this season with 13 matches left to play, despite hitting 22 last campaign.

City extended their record-breaking run in their victory over Arsenal but Pep Guardiola felt they were pushed hard by the Gunners under his former assistant Mikel Arteta.
“It was a really tough game,” Guardiola said after the match. “We didn’t have the players that we used to play and create our game because Mikel is so clever and they make man to man in the build up.
“It was really difficult to find the right players to attack better but we were consistent again. We started incredibly well again and for 15-20 minutes was so brilliant.
“After they were better than us, we could not press, we could not have the ball and they didn’t create much but there were crosses.
“We made a brilliant second half, it was so good. We are delighted for the three points because it is the Emirates, Arsenal away, and I know Mikel, how good he is and how well his team plays.”
