The striker has enjoyed great fortunes against the Clarets, and that run continued on Saturday at Emirates Stadium

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued with his impressive goalscoring run following his strike in Arsenal’s 2-1 triumph over Burnley on Saturday.

The Gabon international’s strike powered the Gunners past Newcastle in the season opener, and against Sean Dyche’s men, he scored the winner after Ashley Barnes had levelled Alexandre Lacazette’s effort.

Unfortunately for Burnley, their Auba-related misery continued as they suffered their first loss this term at Emirates Stadium.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund man boasts an enviable record against the Clarets, who hold the dubious distinction of being Aubameyang's favourite opponents.

He has found the Burnley net not less than seven times in four games, a strike rate of 0.57 goals a game.

The 30-year-old’s strike powered Unai Emery’s men to the English top-flight summit with six points from two games.

Arsenal face arch-rivals Liverpool in their next outing on August 28 with the former African Player of the Year hoping to get on target again.
