Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta sent a crucial message to his players by dropping captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Thursday night, according to Martin Keown.

The Gunners striker was a key lowlight in what Keown described as 'the most disappointing performance under Arteta', as Liverpool brushed aside a lacklustre Arsenal on Saturday.

Willian came in to replace Aubameyang for the Europa League quarter-final clash with Slavia Prague, and the Invincibles defender believes Arteta made the right call.

'It's a big statement,' Keown said on BT Sport punditry duty.

'Recently he left him out for being late for training.

'It sets a bigger example and the players know that nobody is exempt from being chopped from the side if the captain is being dropped.

Aubameyang missed the North London Derby last month to be with his mother during a spell of ill health, revealing she was 'much better' as he returned to the side.
