Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang kicked off to a flying start in Premier League on Saturday after registering a resounding 5-1 victory against Everton with his new side. Here, we assess his performance. The striker had been a doubt having picked up an illness after his Deadline Day arrival from Borussia Dortmund, but any uncertainty about his fitness was swiftly forgotten.
Arsenal recorded an impressive 5-1 win over Everton on Saturday evening at the Emirates Stadium to keep their hopes of landing a Champions League spot alive. Another news signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan was also the star performer after creating three assists during the match.
It took six minutes for Arsenal to break the deadlock with Ramsey finishing off a lovely build-up play from the right flank.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored on his debut assisted by Henrikh Mkhitaryan. With the score already at 3-0, the only thing missing was a debut goal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. His shot from Ramsey’s pass was heading towards goal when it was deflected wide by Ashley Williams.
He is a Wenger sort of player, who will excite fans and contribute a lot to the attacking side of the Gunners game.
Walcott returned as a hero, got a great reception as he lined up for Everton and, at 28, he still has a good career and time in front of him. Mkhitaryan assist, Aubameyang goal. “I wanted to do more”, Wenger said, responding to a question about Arsenal’s transfer window.
The Gabon international’s goal should have been ruled out for offside but the Frenchman didn’t care about the linesman’s mistake as he praised the 28-year-old for his movement. “Aubameyang, I have to assess how well he feels”.
The Gunners would bag one more goal on 74 minutes, with Ramsey scoring after yet another assist from the superb Mkhitaryan.
Mkhitaryan, added, “We played very good attacking football in the first half”.
‘They’ve brought quality into this team.
Arsenal demolished the challenge of an Everton side that came to Emirates in high spirits in the first half of the game only.
The back four of Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin is expected to remain unchanged.
Aubameyang might have scored in the 32nd minute when Keane missed a tackle deep in Arsenal’s half and the Gabonese global raced away but his shot was saved by Pickford.
Cech isn’t getting better with age any longer and Arsenal probably need to look for his replacement in the summer.
