Arsenal had a collective day to forget as they were thrashed 5-1 by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday but spare a thought for striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

He went into the game as the team’s top scorer but’d just 13 touches before being substituted in the 71st minute.

To make things even worse, SIX of those touches were from the kick-off.

Don’t believe us? Here is his signature map to prove it.

Aubameyang touch map against Liverpool

As the chart showsthe Gabon international was just given the ball in the Liverpool playground and much more of his touches arrive from their own penalty area than Liverpool’s.

Aubameyang’s 13 touches was his lowest total in any game he’s started this season and just Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has received fewer touches if playing 70 minutes in the Premier League this year – he had 1-1 touches in 87 minutes for Leicester against Arsenal in October.

Unsurprisingly, Aubameyang additionally made the fewest moves of almost any player to have played the majority of the match.

He left just 10 moves even though they were successful therefore he ended the game as the sole participant with 100% passing accuracy.
