Arsenal may have to wait fo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's debut

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is an Arsenal player (and we're almost able to spell his name without checking Google).

The Gabonese striker's arrival from Borussia Dortmund was confirmed on deadline day - despite the cat being let out of the bag days earlier by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mkhitaryan, a former Dortmund teammate of Aubameyang, is expected to make his full debut in the weekend game against Everton, having come on from the bench in the midweek defeat at Swansea.

Aubameyang, however, may have to wait for his first appearance for his new club. Arsene Wenger revealed during his press conference on Friday that he will have to assess his new number 14, who is recovering from a sickness bug.

"I have to assess how well he is physically today and how well he feels," Wenger said.

"He had a fever, so he could not practice a lot. He started yesterday, but was still not completely well.

 "I have to assess with the medical department how fit he can be."
Arsenal head into the weekend in sixth place in the Premier League table - five points adrift of the top four. They face a North London derby with Tottenham at Wembley a week on Saturday, a game that could prove significant in their hopes of securing Champions League football next season.
