"Unfortunately, due to a disciplinary breach," he said when asked
about the player's absence. "There are non-negotiables we have set as a
club and I think we have been very consistent."

The Arsenal boss was asked how long Aubameyang could be out for, replying: "It starts today.

Emirates Stadium in September last year, has scored just four times and
assisted once in 14 appearances in the Premier League this season,
