Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Cemented His Arsenal Legacy and Deserves His New Deal

Wembley hadn’t been a happy hunting ground for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Since Mikel Arteta’s arrival at Arsenal, he’s almost exclusively played from wide positions, usually off the left.

Aubameyang’s spell at Arsenal has already been an emotional one, the searing highs of an unforgettable FA Cup win mixed with the lows of some huge misses crucial to the club's recent history.

Looking at his stats per 90 minutes when playing on the wing this season, Aubameyang has averaged more non-penalty goals, assists, touches, tackles, interceptions and blocks - he's involved a lot more and it's paying off, with Arsenal averaging 1.57 points per game with their captain out wide as opposed to 1.14 when he's up top.

And yet Aubameyang’s three most recent games at the National Stadium will likely define his legacy as a player.

Aubameyang now has somewhere he can truly call his home, and it's ironic that a man so often seen inanely smiling from ear to ear has found it at a place that's been as unhappy as the Emirates Stadium in recent years.

Five goals, the FA Cup and the Community Shield to boot have rewritten how he’ll be remembered in N5.
