Arsenal beat José Mourinho’s team at the Emirates, thanks to goals from Martin Odegaard and Alexandre Lacazette, as Erik Lamela’s goal was not enough for the visitors.


Aubameyang had shown up late before the game, and the strict Arteta spared no sympathy, saying: “He was not going to start the game. We  had a disciplinary issue, we have drawn the line, and we move on.


“We have a process that we have to respect for every game, and that’s it.

“It was a decision made after evaluating everything and who Auba is and what he’s done. We have other players who can play.”
