Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been named the winner of the Premier League Player of the Month for September.

The Gabon international delivered impactful showings for Unai Emery’s men last month, scoring in all the games he featured.

The 30-year-old found the back of the net five times to take his goal tally to seven in the English top flight and helped the Gunners avoid defeat in September.

Aubameyang grabbed a brace in the Gunners' 2-2 draw against Watford and was also on the scoresheet against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Aston Villa.

The impressive performances ensured he won the award ahead of Algeria international and Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

The forward also beat Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira, Aston Villa’s John McGinn, Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson to the individual accolade.

Aubameyang replicated his goalscoring form for Gabon on Thursday, scoring the match-winner in their 1-0 victory against Burkina Faso.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker will hope to continue with his impressive form for Arsenal when they take on Sheffield United on October 21.
