Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has called for fight and unity at the club as their poor run of form continued with a 2-2 draw against Southampton at the Emirates on Saturday.

A late Alexandre Lacazette equaliser saw the spoils shared after another disappointing afternoon for the Gunners, which ended with them booed by fans as they left the field at full-time.

Aubameyang understands the supporter's frustration and knows that Arsenal will need to show fight to turn their season around.

"The team is disappointed like the fans are as well," he said.

"When we are playing, we are the first to be disappointed when it doesn't work.
