Since signing for Arsenal on 31 January, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 22 goals and made six assists in 36 appearances.
His brace against Sp*rs on Sunday, taken with the pizzazz of Thierry Henry, took his tally for this season to 12 goals. Just for good measure, he also weighed in with five tackles, winning more than any other player in Gunners red.
Despite all that, the 29-year-old insists he’s not yet found his best form in England.
“It’s coming. Against Tottenham, I felt very good on the pitch and I am really happy. But my best form is coming.
“It’s the best league in the world so it’s a great challenge for me.
Having started the season leading the attack, Auba has had to make do with a place on the left wing for much of the last two months.
A groin problem for close pal Alex Lacazette forced Unai Emery to return him to a central berth for the games with Bournemouth and Sp*rs and the player maintains it’s his preferred position.
“Of course I prefer playing centrally, but I know that I am can help the team and sometimes the coach puts me on the left side. But as I said, it’s my favourite position, so on Sunday it was good.”
While there’s a long way to go this season, Auba currently leads the charge for the Golden Boot award.
He’s got strong competition from ex-Gunner Harry Kane and Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero have also been in the goals, however, were he to keep up his form, he’d be the first Arsenal player to pick up the gong since Robin van Persie in 2012.
“It’s early in the season and I know that we have good strikers in this league,” is Auba’s take on the situation.
“It will be tough, but I am happy that we won against Tottenham. I think the most important thing, as I always say, is the team.”
