Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang thanked fans for their support after explaining he had missed recent matches after his mother took ill.

The forward sat out consecutive trips to Southampton – a 1-0 FA Cup defeat and a 3-1 Premier League win – with what the club described as “personal issues”.

Manager Mikel Arteta had admitted he was unsure when the Gabon international would be able to return, with the Gunners now preparing for league games against Manchester United and Wolves over the next six days.

Aubameyang suggested he could be back soon as he confirmed his mother was recovering.

“Thank you so much for all the messages and calls over the last few days,” he wrote on social media on Wednesday.

“My mother is going through some health issues and I had to be there for her. She’s already much better now and I will be back home tonight. I’m more than grateful to the doctors and nurses helping her get through this.

“And of course, thanks to my Arsenal fam for the love yesterday! I’m more determined than ever to keep our momentum going!

“Thank you all again – I really am beyond blessed to receive this level of support and love from all of you and I can’t wait to be back.”

Team-mates Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette dedicated goals in Tuesday’s win at Southampton to Aubameyang, who has scored five times in 17 league games this season.

The Gunners’ win moved them into eighth place in the league, five points behind West Ham in fourth, although many of the surrounding sides in the table have games in hand.
