The Arsenal skipper was on Saturday, December 11, dropped from the squad that played against Southampton, with Mikel revealing the forward was axed due to a disciplinary breach.

Arteta spoke broadly about the decision before the kickoff, divulging Auba had failed to meet some "non-negotiables" set for the team.

"Unfortunately due to a disciplinary breach. I think we have been very consistent that we have certain non-negotiables in the team that we have set ourselves as a club, and he's not involved today," the Arsenal boss said.

According to Sutton, this could now mark the beginning of the end of Auba's career with the Gunners and it is only a matter of time before he is stripped of the captaincy.

"What I do find interesting is that Arteta could have kept it quiet, in-house, but he hasn't done. He knows what's going to happen now that it's out in the public domain," the ex-Chelsea star noted.
"There's clearly a rift between the two parties and something has got to give. it will be interesting how this one will be resolved," he added.

The development comes at a time Aubameyang is facing an uncertain future with Arsenal following a string of poor performances.

Reports in the UK contend Arsenal chiefs are ready to count their losses and get rid of the Gabonese striker.

Arsenal stun Southampton

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Arsenal bounced back to winning ways with a comprehensive performance that saw off Southampton at the Emirates Stadium.

Lacazette, Odegaard, and Gabriel were all on the score sheet as the North Londoners sprung to fifth momentarily on the log with the win.

The Gunners were without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whom Arteta revealed was absent because of disciplinary reasons.

That did not matter, though, as the Gunners were impressive all afternoon, as stand-in skipper Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring in the 21st minute after a sleek move from his side.

Martin Odegaard then doubled his side’s lead six minutes later with a header from close range coming from Kieran Tierney’s cross.

A thoroughly dominant performance was capped up with a goal from Gabriel in the second half to seal the victory.
