Jamie Redknapp believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is “past his best” and feels the Arsenal striker has “lost his superpower”.
Aubameyang, 31, endured a difficult afternoon in Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City on Sunday, failing to register a single shot on goal as he was closely marshalled by John Stones and Ruben Dias.
The striker fared better last weekend, scoring a hat-trick in Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Leeds, but his form has been patchy over the course of the season and Redknapp feels age is catching up with him.
“Aubameyang is past his best,” said the Sky Sports pundit. “He’s going to have moments; he’s going to get hat-tricks. But when I watch him sometimes, it’s like he’s lost his superpower.
“I saw him run past people when he first came to the Premier League. I saw him run past people at Dortmund. Now I’m seeing a player who looks like he’s going to get bullied.
“He’s your leading light, but the likes of [Bukayo] Saka and [Emile] Smith Rowe, they’re the ones leading the way.”
