Aubameyang has now scored in each of his last four Premier League appearances for the Gunners and even broke a record against Saints. With six goals and one assist in total, he has now been directly involved in more goals in his first seven Premier League games than any other Arsenal player in the competition's history. It has been an encouraging start.

Expected nothing less from this guy. Proven natural striker. He just wants to score goals, none of this I'll try for one more pass instead of shooting nonsense.

Apparently he's been our fastest player in each of our last four games as well, clocking up a top speed of 35.3 km per hour.

Hope this form continues into next season!

“It’s been that way from the start, and it helps that he can speak basically every language you hear in the dressing room.

“He can speak German, French, Spanish and English and that’s helped him. He wants to get to work and show everyone what he’s capable of.

“Auba’s putting himself in the best possible position to succeed and I’ve really enjoyed his attitude so far. He’s implementing everything we want from him at the moment.

Aside from his goals, an encouraging aspect of Aubameyang’s play is the way he adapted to being moved out to the left to accommodate the introduction of Alexandre Lacazette during the recent win against Stoke.

The game was 0-0 at the time Lacazaette was introduced, but with both players on the field Arsenal went on to win 3-0 - with Aubameyang scoring twice and Lacazette bagging the other from the penalty spot.


Communication with team-mates - that's why Auba is so successful to-date and why the likes of Jose Reyes and Gabriel flopped; they can't speak English.

Perhaps Wenger is having his dream pairing of Henry-Anelka being fulfilled in Aubameyang-Lacazette.

And it is not too bad having a fit-again Welbeck with his tireless energy as the 3rd-choice striker ... and prepared to sit on the bench without a mutter, like supersub Soljerk at ManU.


“Auba showed how effective he can be from the flank,” said Mertesacker.

And one's can't help observing that during corners, Auba is always hovering at the end of the opposite, opposite corner of where the corner was taken, and always find aces of space there, un-marked.

Laca and Welbeck are basher and smasher in the box with Laca far more superior in holding the ball and creating that yard of space to fine that split-second to shoot at goal. Whereas Welbeck is just a physical presence with a heavy first touch and sometiems cna hold up the ball well.

A nicve combination with Auba preferring to run into passing channels and space from outside the box wheeas laca is that fox-in-the-box and the ability to hold the ball and set-up team-mates running into passing channels.

And multiple that effect with a NO.8 like Ramsey who has the knack to run into scoring posiitons and anticipation where loose balls in the box are.

'I like the total intensification, where there are crashes and bangs everywhere, pure adrenaline and no one being able to breathe' Jurgen Klopp.

Mertesacker on Aubameyang:

"Auba wants to work & integrate himself as quickly as possible. It helps that he speaks basically every language you hear in the dressing room. He can speak German, French, Spanish & English. He wants to get to work & show everyone what he’s capable of."

My only concern was that he was going to think he was too big for the club and was going to rub players the wrong way.

So far though, he comes across really humble despite his love of bling, and seems to genuinely like the boys. He attends all the europa games he doesn't play in and seems really down to earth.

He's smart too. Like really smart. He's been doing all these brain activities to make himself a better quicker player as well. That's the sort of dedication we have lacked for far too long.

So happy we have him. In many ways he's exactly the opposite of what made Sanchez hard to like for me.
