Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has blasted Sokratis Papastathopoulos, David Luiz and Arsenal team-mates after they threw away a 2-0 lead against Watford to draw on Sunday. The 30-year-old striker enjoyed a superb opening half after Sead Kolasinac set up last season joint Premier League top scorer for the opener while Ainsley Mainland-Niles's cross was tapped in by Gabon international for his fifth goal in five games this season. Arsenal capitulated in the second half after first a dreadful error from defender Sokratis following a short goal kick led to Tom Cleverley firing home, and then Luiz clumsily tripped Roberto Pereyra in the box, with the Argentinean scoring the resulting penalty.Aubameyang was disappointed with Arsenal letting in cheap goals as he told to Canal Plus: "Obviously we didn’t expect that [the comeback]. We knew that they were going to try and come back with good intentions, of the kind they demonstrated in the second half."Sadly, we were not able to deal with them well. I feel like we are literally giving goals to the opposition, it is up to us to progress in that respect."
