After scoring five goals in four appearances for the Gunners Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as the Premier League Player of the Month for September.
It is the second time since moving to Arsenal that Aubameyang has won the monthly award, having previously done so in December 2018 during his joint Golden Boot-winning campaign.
The players that competed with the Gabonese attacker for the price are: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrz, Son Heung-min, John McGinn, Ricardo Pereira and Callum Wilson.
All five of Aubameyang’s goals were important ones that directly earned points for Arsenal in their bid to finally return to the Champions League.
The 30-year-old started in September netting a crucial equaliser in the 2-2 north London derby against Tottenham. He later grabbed both Arsenal goals in another 2-2 draw against Watford a couple of weeks later, and then scored the winner in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa.
Aubameyang also scored the equaliser that secured Arsenal a point at Old Trafford against Manchester United, ensuring the Gunners finished September unbeaten.
Arsenal have already managed one by earning a narrow victory against Bournemouth last weekend; Aubameyang will be calling upon his teammates to help turn some of those draws into future wins with more polished performances, in October.
Unai Emery’s side head to Sheffield United on October 21 when domestic football resumes after the international break, with further league fixtures against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester in the weeks that follow.
