All the three teams have salvaged just a point each.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has now gone five games without finding the back of the net for the first time in his spell with Arsenal.

The Gunners were beaten by visiting Leicester City courtesy of a Jamie Vardy goal ten minutes from time.

Aubameyang last scored a goal for Arsenal in their opening day win over Fulham and has fired blanks ever since.

The Gabonese striker has gone without scoring in their last five matches, a record which he last experienced with Dortmund in 2014.

The 31-year-old signed a new lucrative deal in the summer but his current form has raised concerns and criticisms from different quarters.
