With 22 goals and 6 assists in 32 games for Arsenal since joining from Borussia Dortmund in January, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has unquestionably demonstrated his goalscoring qualities.
This season he’s the leading scorer in the Premier League with 10 goals, and the Gunners boss Unai Emery is hoping to get even more from the 29 year old between now and May.
Auba struck twice against Sp*rs on Sunday to help us to a 4-2 North London derby win, and the Spaniard is clearly pushing the striker to benefit both the team and his chances of winning the Golden Boot.
“I want him to continue improving,” said Emery. “I want the challenge for him to be the possibility to be the best scorer in the Premier League.
“We want to help him to achieve this. But it’s because if he is scoring, he’s helping us.”
Emery’s use of the the club’s record signing has been interesting at times this season, playing him on the left or bringing him on later in games to take advantage of tired legs.
“Sometimes his best performance is starting the match on the bench and then playing 20 or 25 minutes,” he explained.
“In the last two matches he has had a very big performance, working and scoring. I want to say to him and also to everyone: ‘Don’t stop, continue with this commitment every match.”
Hopefully he can do the business against Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight, because as well as getting us three valuable points, it might make Mourinho’s head explode.
And who doesn’t want that?
