Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Casually Went To The Toilet During Arsenal Vs Brighton
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang casually left the field while Arsenal chased an equaliser vs Brighton because he needed the toilet.
The Arsenal captain disappeared for a few minutes and he headed down the tunnel for an unknown reason.
Interim manager Freddie Ljungberg confirmed after the game that the Gabonese forward disappeared for a toilet break.
Ljungberg said following the game per The Sun:
"I actually didn't even notice he went off, I just saw him come back on after he'd been off for a couple of minutes.

"When you need to go, you need to go."
Aubameyang reentered the pitch to cheers from fans inside the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal had a throw-in inside the Brighton half.
But Arsenal fans on Twitter didn't see the funny side of their captain leaving their side down to 10 men for a period of time.
nothing will change the rot, those players don't care anymore, they don't care for the club or the fans... point in fact that aubameyang went for a toilet break in middle of match... all the games i've watched in my life that has never once happened #bbcfootball

When Aubameyang was stood on the sidelines waiting to return from his toilet break, I genuinely thought they were bringing him on as a sub. Had absolutely no idea he was playing tonight #bhafc

It's a story that adds to the general consensus of Arsenal being an utter shambles at the moment.
The Gunners haven't won since October and are currently five points above the relegation zone.
Sacking Unai Emery last Friday hasn't changed their fortunes as they're on their worst run since the 1970's.
Mesut Ozil was pictured at full-time looking visibly frustrated at the performance.
The German was videoed in heated debate with interim assistant and former Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker.
Despite Arsenal's general poorness, Brighton deserve full credit for the result.
Graham Potter's side controlled the game and enjoyed more of the possession as well as 20 shots on target.
