Arsenal attacker Martin Odegaard says they can survive without former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Mikel Arteta chose to offload Aubameyang to Barcelona in the January transfer window having stripped the 32-year-old of the captaincy and exiled him one month earlier.
“I think it is the team’s job to make sure we score goals, it is not up to one or two players,” the Norwegian said.
“I think everyone needs to help each other and create chances for each other, and help each other in front of the goal.
“I am sure we have the qualities in this team to score many goals.
“Of course, it’s an area we want to improve and we have to do a little bit better but I am sure we have the quality in the team and the way we play.
“I am sure we will create chances, so I don’t see it as a problem.”
Although Odegaard is upbeat about Arsenal’s potential on the pitch without Aubameyang, he confessed it is never nice to see a colleague leave for pastures new.
The 23-year-old added: “I think it is always sad when players leave the club but that is up to the manager and the club to do those kind of things.
“Then we have to focus on the players that are here and I think we have a strong group, and an interesting team.
“We need to focus on the players that are here and keep on improving and using our qualities.”
