• No guarantee Aubameyang will face Olympiakos on Thursday
  • Arsenal manager calls on international teams to ‘adapt’

Mikel Arteta has drawn a line under the disciplinary situation that saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dropped for Arsenal’s win over Spurs on Sunday, but says there are no guarantees the captain will return to his starting lineup straight away.

Aubameyang had to watch the derby from the bench after what was described as a “breach of pre-match protocol”, understood to entail arriving at the Emirates later than appointed. His replacement, Alexandre Lacazette, scored the winning penalty. Arteta explained that the pair had discussed the matter and that the issue had been laid to rest.
