Gabonese forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has got down to business at Arsenal, hitting six Premier League goals since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January. The forward has ever been engaged with more goals in his first seven EPL games than any Arsenal player ever.

At the point when Aubameyang touches down at Emirate, there wasn’t excessively to be too positive about at the club. The North London outfit experienced a horrible run of form toward the start of the year, losing four games consecutively, including two humiliating 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in just a week.

Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez forced a move out of the club and the cries of ‘Wenger Out‘ from fans grew louder, the club is presently set to finish outside the top four for the second successive year, and face a precarious Europa League campaign as their only means of next season’s Champions League rely on hoisting the Europa League Cup.

Meanwhile, among all the cynicism and negativity from fans, Aubameyang has been a reason for hope. The former BVB forward didn’t take time to settle his feet in Premier League’s quicksand and has been a steady player on the scoresheet for Arsenal in his initial few months.

In the wake of netting Arsenal’s first goal against Southampton on Sunday afternoon, the Gabonese international has now scored in four back to back games. Aubameyang has also set an Arsenal record in his initial 3-month spell in North London, netting six goals and one assist in seven Premier League game, a record no any other Arsenal player has ever match.

Arsenal’s season appears to be bound to be played out against a backdrop of empty seats and apathy but Aubameyang is doing his best to revive life back into the Emirates Stadium.

Aubameyang’s six goals have come at a rate of every 102 minutes, a record that puts him among the top best in the Premier League this season. There ought not to be an excessive number of fears about the little example measure. His record at Dortmund was comparative. To be sure, his strike rate is relatively indistinguishable to Harry Kane’s this season.

He has also been the fastest player in the Gunner’s team in their last four matches, recording a top speed of 35.3 km/h.

Establishing a positive impression on his teammates and breaking records, there isn’t considerably more he can do to make an achievement of his first half-season with the Gunners. The genuine test will come next season, obviously. But the benefit of getting this campaign in which to adjust to life in Emirate could work out exceptionally well for Aubameyang and Arsenal.

With the way Aubameyang is settling in, Arsenal fan’s will hope that with a full pre-season added to his repertoire next season, the striker will be able to help the North London outfit launch a Premier League challenge.
