The Arsenal skipper is going through a dry patch in front of goal, by his own lofty standards, but a brace against Newcastle last night brought up his triple century for club & country.
There’s no questioning Aubameyang’s goal-scoring track-record or calibre, with the Gabonese star proving himself time and again as one of Europe’s most clinical and reliable finishers.

Aubameyang’s finest moment in an Arsenal jersey was undoubtedly when he lifted the 2020 FA Cup after bagging braces in both the semifinal and the final to vanquish Man City and Chelsea respectively. Aubameyang boasts a brilliant record in the FA Cup, with six goals scored in just four matches played.
Aubameyang and his Gunners teammates come up against either Southampton or Shrewsbury Town in the 4th round of the world’s oldest club competition this weekend.
One thing is for sure, the old adage “form is temporary but class is permanent” certainly applies to Pierre-Emerick Emiliano François Aubameyang. Or Auba for short.
