Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoops Arsenal’s Player of the Month award, fans react

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has won Arsenal’s Player of the Month for October as the Gabonese international picked up 55% of votes to take the gong over fellow striker Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil.

The speedster scored five goals and chalked up an assist in a month where his goalscoring exploits broke Premier League records – the former Borussia Dortmund man now has the best strike-rate in league history for a player who has scored over ten goals.

The Gunners’ great four weeks has seen them further extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 14 games and ensure they keep pace with the top four, with their ambitions and quality on show as they came back from one down to draw with Liverpool last weekend.

Unai Emery’s side host Sporting Lisbon on Thursday night in the Europa League. Aubameyang will be hoping to build on an outstanding October and help his team seize all three points to stay top of Group E.

Arsenal fans on Twitter were quick to appreciate former manager Arsene Wenger for bringing the hitman to the Emirates, while others drew comparisons to the world’s best.
