Mkhitaryan's absence will motivate us to win Europa League, says Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believes Henrikh Mkhitaryan's absence from next week's Europa League final against Chelsea will be a motivation to Arsenal. 

The Armenian decided against travelling to Baku, Azerbaijan for the final on May 29 due to concerns over his safety. 

“We know it is a big shame but we respect his decision," Aubameyang was quoted by the Evening Standard.

"It is not easy for him to go there because of political problems. It is a big shame but now we have one more motivation to win.

“Everybody here wants to be back in the Champions League. That’s been the target since the beginning of the season.”

Auba has been in terrific form for the Gunners this season scoring  31 goals in 50 appearances across all competitions.
