Arsenal Goal of the Month: Aubameyang wins vote
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been voted the winner of the Arsenal Goal of the Month for September, winning 40% of the online poll on the club’s website.
The 31-year-old was nominated alongside Jordan Nobbs and Vivianne Miedema, and seven other contenders but Aubameyang was voted the winner by an overwhelming majority.
He scored the third goal in the 3-0 victory over Fulham on the opening day of the season, expertly finding the top corner after a brilliant team move that saw Willian set him up with an excellent cross-field ball and this goal was decided as the best for the month.
The vote was open to both senior teams of the club and Aubameyang’s goal was voted ahead of Jordan Nobbs’ rocket strike against Tottenham in the Women’s Super League (25% votes), as well as Miedema’s howitzer against Reading for Arsenal Ladies.
Fans voted on the club’s official website and named the club captain the winner of the award, beating out nine other contenders.
The former Dortmund man was called up to the Gabon squad for the international friendlies with DR Congo and Angola and will be back in club action when Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City in the Premier League.
Will winning the Arsenal Goal of the Month help Aubameyang get back to his best form?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in the world and Arsenal have been privileged to have him within their ranks for the last two-and-half years.
The Gabon international has been nothing short of spectacular since arriving the Emirates and there was widespread jubilation among fans of the Gunners when Auba signed a contract extension last month.
In many ways, he is a one-man army who carries a lot of responsibilities for the club and Aubameyang discharges his duties as the focal point of the Arsenal attack with maximum efficiency.

Since signing for the Gunners in January 2018, the former Monaco man has scored 72 goals in the Premier League, which is more than anyone else has managed in the same time, while he also won the Golden Boot in his first full-season with the club.
However, he is yet to hit the heights expected of him so far this season and has not found the back of the net since the opening day.
Given how important he is to Mikel Arteta’s plans, the Arsenal manager will be hoping that his talisman can get back to his brilliant best as soon as possible.
