Aubameyang passed up hat-trick penalty to help Lacazette's confidence

Premier League: Arsenal win 3-0 to leave Stoke stuck in drop zone

The Gabon striker added his second of the afternoon soon after before unselfishly allowing substitute Alexandre Lacazette to tuck home another penalty as the forward marked his return to fitness with a goal.

But Chambers told Standard Sport: "We are just trying to focus on the game".

Stoke have managed just one win since Christmas and will have to conjure up some more points if they are to avoid relegation.

The Frenchman marked his comeback on Sunday from a knee injury with an 89th-minute penalty in Arsenal's 3-0 victory over struggling Stoke.

Moses gave the ball away and when the ball was worked to the Dane he took aim and fired a right-foot shot from 30 yards that dipped over Caballero who was playing in place of the injured Thibaut Courtois.

Arsenal also lost the League Cup final to City and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship club Nottingham Forest.

Aubameyang later redeemed himself, converting a penalty in the 75th minute after Mesut Ozil was fouled in the box by Bruno Martins Indi.

"Then they started to get a grip and I think the players in midfield started to get hold of the game". He took down Eric Dier's pass and fired the ball past Chelsea's keeper.

After helping the Blues to the Premier League title a year ago in an injury-hit campaign, the Frenchman is now battling at the other end of the division after joining the Potters on loan back in July.

Ozil was part of the team who left it late to earn a 3-0 victory with his side getting booed off by the fans in the first half when it was goalless. "But in the second half we were much better".

Manchester City are reportedly ready to overtake Arsenal in the hunt to sign Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu this summer, and manager Pep Guardiola is said to be a big admirer.

"We want to win every game so at the moment we are going to prepare for every game and try to get the results we need from each game".
