Arsenal are starting to slowly push up the league as they now sit in seventh place, and only six points off a Champions League spot, per BBC Sport.
They managed to thrash Norwich City 4-0 yesterday, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang picking up the Man of the Match award as he scored two goals and also grabbed an assist, per SofaScore.
Speaking after the game was pundit and former Arsenal defender Martin Keown, who spoke highly of the forward whilst also emphasising his desire for him to stay at the club. On BT Sport, via The Express, Keown said, “Of course. I think he has a very difficult decision to make. He clearly loves the club.
“The way that he scored all the goals, beating Henry to that, in a team that really you can’t say is anywhere near of the quality that the club once had, you have to credit him with that.
“I sincerely hope that he stays. You need that striker to give you the belief to win games of football.”
It’s hard to disagree with Keown here on the quality he has, and it is fair to compare him to Thierry Henry as Aubameyang scored his 50th Premier League goal for the club in 79 appearances last night. Arsenal pointed out on Twitter how fast he has managed this as he has reached this great feat in less appearances than the Gunners legend.
It is also fair to say he loves the club, as you could see his passion after he scored in the fixture yesterday, and without his goals, the Gunners would be a lot worse off than they are.
His 19 goals in all competitions this season is the most out of any Arsenal player this season, and is 12 more than Alexandre Lacazette, who has the second-most goals for the club, and this emphasises why Keown desperately wants the forward to stay.
Gunners fans, do you think Aubameyang will stay at the club? Comment below!
