Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been voted as Arsenal’s first Player of the Month for 2019-20 season.

The 30-year-old striker delivered eye-catching performances for Unai Emery’s men in August, helping his side to pick up six points from three games.

The former Borussia Dortmund attacker scored the solitary goal against Newcastle United to help the Gunners start their campaign on an impressive note.

Aubameyang was again at his best, scoring the match-winning goal in the Gunners’ 2-1 victory over Burnley at Emirates Stadium.

The Gabon international was also on hand to assist Lucas Torreira for their consolatory goal in their 3-1 defeat against Liverpool.

On the back of the stand-out performances, the forward has been voted the best player for the month under review.

Aubameyang secured 34 percent of the votes cast, with Joe Willock and Matteo Guendouzi finishing second and third, respectively.
