Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits that it will be difficult to lift the Gunners' morale, after losing their first three Premier League games.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted that Mikel Arteta has a "difficult" job to lift the Gunners' spirits following this afternoon's heavy defeat to Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's side beat Arsenal 5-0 on Saturday, meaning that Arsenal have lost their first three games of a league season for the first time since 1954.

Aubameyang told BT Sport: "Today it wasn't enough, and against a team like City even when it is 11 against 11 you have to take risks and be brave on the ball, and we didn't today.

"After the red card it was a different game, but this is not enough and everyone has to raise the level, work harder as a team and stick together. This is the only way to go forward.

"We have to play with courage. This type of game we have to play with everything, and take risks, but we just didn't do enough today. I think we have to talk between us players, and I think this is important because we are Arsenal, and we have to show our wounded pride.

"We have to talk, and say the truth between each other, be honest and raise the level. It's going to be difficult (for Arteta to motivate the squad), but we are a team and we have to stick together in this moment. As the senior players we have to show the way as well. It's not going to be easy, but we'll try to give our best."

Arsenal currently sit bottom of the Premier League, having not managed to score a goal in their opening three games.
