Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal 2019-20
The 30-year-old becomes the second Gunner to get as many as seven goals in the club’s first seven English top-flight matches of a season
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined an exclusive goalscoring club on Monday, as his goal against Manchester United saw him become the second Arsenal man to score at least seven times in the first seven matches of a Premier League season.

Aubameyang ensured the match at Old Trafford ended 1-1 after erasing Scott McTominay's first-half strike as VAR overruled the linesman’s offside call.

Thanks to his heroics, the 2015 African Player of the Year now takes his place in Arsenal history alongside club legend Dennis Bergkamp, who had achieved the feat in the 1997-98 season.

To underline his efficiency, it was the Gabon international’s 14th goal in his last 14 starts for the Emirates Stadium side.

Following the draw against Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s team, Unai Emery’s men are fourth in the Premier League with 12 points from seven fixtures.

After Thursday’s Europa League clash with Standard Liege, Aubameyang will be looking to extend his scoring streak at home to Bournemouth on Sunday.
