The Gabon ace scored against the Hammers, but how has he fared in London derbies since joining the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is certainly a player who always gets the job done during Premier League’s London derbies.

The Gunners’ skipper got a goal and an assist as Freddie Ljungberg's side clawed back from a goal deficit to defeat West Ham United 3-1 on Monday night.

Following their 2-2 draw at Norwich City and 2-1 home loss to Brighton and Hove Albion, it looked like Arsenal would struggle again when Angelo Ogbonna put the Hammers ahead in the 38th minute.

However, Gabriel Martinelli brought the Gunners back into the reckoning with his equaliser on the hour mark, before Aubameyang assisted Nicolas Pepe for their second goal.

The Gabon international put the game beyond the reach of Manuel Pellegrini’s side with his 69th-minute effort.

With his performance at the London Stadium, the 30-year-old has now been involved in 12 goals in his last 11 English top-flight London derbies (nine goals, three assists).

His consistency has stopped Arsenal’s tortuous campaign from sinking too low, as he has now boasts of 11 goals in 16 league games this term.

Remarkably, Auba has scored 43 goals in the tournament since making his bow in February 2018 – a joint-high along with Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy.

After Thursday’s Europa League Group F clash against Standard Liege, Ljungberg's team welcomes Manchester City to Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
