Arsenal have started their 2020/21 campaign ideally as they lifted the Community Shield after beating Liverpool on penalties at Wembley on Saturday.
It wasn’t an easy game against the Premier League champions but the Gunners started off brightly and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave them an early lead with a lovely curling finish from outside the box.
Mikel Arteta’s side held on until the second half but an equaliser from Takumi Minamino forced a penalty shoot-out with the teams level at 1-1 after 90 minutes. Captain Aubameyang was again the hero as he scored the fifth and decisive penalty for Arsenal.
This means that Arteta now has two trophies with the club and he hasn’t even been in charge for a full calendar year yet, so the Spaniard has enjoyed a very promising start to his managerial tenure with the Gunners.
Aubameyang took to Instagram following the game at Wembley and he seems to be enjoying life at the club as he posted a collection of pictures with the squad and the Community Shield.
With considerable discussion surrounding the forward’s future as he only has a year left on his current contract, perhaps Gunners fans can rest more easily as, judging by the 31-year-old’s social media post, he appears to be enjoying his time at the club, so last season’s 29-goal top scorer might not be going anywhere just yet.
Gunners fans, do you think Aubameyang will stay at Arsenal for another season? Let us know your views by commenting below!
