Gabon striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang looks to have found his scoring boot once again as Arsenal made light work of Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby on Sunday.
The former African Footballer of the Year was among the three goal scorers in the Gunners 3-1 victory over Spurs at the Emirates in the English premier league match week six.
After a sleek midfield exchange, Bukayo Saka was set free on the right wing who equally made easy work of his marker before sweeping the ball low into Spurs goal area. Emile-Smith Rowe was well positioned to slap in the Gunners opener with 12 minutes played.
The first goal scorer, Smith Rowe turned the provider for the second this time. Smith Rowe took on his marker on the left and sent a gliding low cross which saw Gabon striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang made no mistake in scoring with a perfect left strike on the 27th minute.
It was the turn of Bukayo Saka to increase the tally for a highly fired up Arsenal. The 21-year-old made a solo effort in Spurs goal area before sliding the third on his weaker right foot to make it 3-0 on the 34th minute.
Spurs came close to pulling one back but Harry Kane’s header went a fraction wide off the upright on the 38th minute.
Arsenal held on to the huge 3-0 score line moving into the first half.
The second half saw both sides still in search of goals but Arsenal remained resolute with Spurs desperate.
Spurs left back, Sergio Reguilon provided a good low cross into Arsenal’s third with a well placed Son Heung Min on hand to score a consolation to end the game at 3-1.
The African presence was much felt as Ghana international, Thomas Partey alongside Granit Xhaka held the midfield as hard as a steel. Partey enjoyed full time just as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal have now won their last three matches after three opening defeat and will move into 10th on 9 points.
