Aubameyang on the win, scoring and building confidence

17

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 15th goal of the season helped Arsenal to a comfortable 2-0 win at Newcastle United.

After the match, the striker faced the Sky Sports cameras. Here’s what he had to say…

On needing a win…

We needed this one. I think after a few games without winning it was important to win before our important game on Thursday. It’s good for the confidence of the team.

On scoring against Newcastle…

It was a great goal, I think. Gabi did incredible work today and he gave me this assist. All the credit to him. I was really happy to be back.

On the plan being to make a quick start…

Yes, definitely. This was the idea for the team. We did a great job as a team. We pressed them, we played our game and we won this game.

On getting on the scoresheet…

I have to say, when you’re out for a few weeks you realise how good it is to be on the pitch. It was good to be back first and scoring a goal, yeah, I’m really happy.

On Mo Elneny’s first Premier League goal…

It was a great goal. I’m happy for him because he’s an absolutely great guy.

On getting 75 minutes under his belt…

At the end, the last five minutes, I was dying a little bit. To tell the truth, I felt good all the game. I was happy about that. I have to say the doctors have done incredible work with me, bringing me to the hospital and stuff like that. I’m really pleased with them and I have to say thank you.

On this being a big result before Thursday…

As I said before, it was really important to take some confidence and win this game. We know on Thursday we will need everyone to be ready. We saw today that everyone is ready so hopefully, we’re going to go through.

You mean like beating Sparta Prague 4-0 away from home

Old but Gold

Crass nonsense, this is the Premier League, there is always something to play for

Qwaliteee

Shhh. Don’t tell anyone, but we’re in the Semi Final of a major European trophy….

Really pleasantly surprised he was able to get so many minutes under his belt today: I thought he’s gonna lack fitness for the rest of the season after contracting malaria.

Completely offtopic: is there a stat showing how many times we actually played in our away kit? Somehow I feel we haven’t seen lots of it during the season.

Another OT, kudos to Man U fans making their voices heard today.

Old but Gold

Kudos for breaking and entering and throwing flares and missiles?

NordicGoon

No, obviously not, for, as I said, making their voices heard. Unfortunately, when a large group of people come together to protest, it is sometimes, maybe even often, a part of the group that use the situation as a reason to riot which is sad and unfortunate, but what would be the alternative? Let’s stay at home and not protest our clubs fall into the abyss of greed because a few overindulged boys may loose their sense of proportion. In that case we shouldn’t have supporters at football grounds at all, as I have never been to a single game… Read more »

Meaning less game. Lose 4 or 5 nil Thursday. Pepe is dog poo and I hope he steps on dog poo

Oh dear…

Stop trolling.

I’m not sure what is more pathetic, the comment or the fact that he has 20 people agreeing with it.

Vonnie

Probably his spud mates.

Old but Gold

We really need fans like you

Not surprised there’s been no mention of it but there was a protest outside St James Park against Steve Bruce. Apparently Mr “Nice guy”

….. is an alleged slumlord looking to evict a tenant from a property that has been poorly maintained.
