Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been announced as Arsenal’s October Player of the Month.

The 29-year-old was in a brilliant form last month, scoring five goals and contributed an assist to help Unai Emery’s men with five wins, one draw in the six games played.

Against Fulham and Leicester City, he scored a brace in each of the games and was on target in their stalemate with Crystal Palace to jointly lead the Premier League goalscoring chart with seven goals.

The former Borussia Dortmund star got 55 percent of the votes cast to scoop the award ahead of Mesut Ozil and Alex Lacazette.

The forward has continued to impress since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium in January and has racked up nine goals in 13 appearances this season across all competitions.

The attacker will be hoping to increase the tally when Arsenal take on Sporting Lisbon in Thursday’s Uefa Europa League game.
