Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goalscoring form this season has boosted him to the summit of the top-scorers chart and the stats show he’s more clinical than ever.
Aubameyang’s two goals at the weekend meant he became the first player since 2007 to score with 10 consecutive shots on target in the Premier League. It’s been a long time now since a goalkeeper managed to keep one of his shots out.

Unsurprisingly, Aubameyang’s overall conversion rate this season is also extremely high. With 12 goals from 44 shots this season in the Premier League and the Europa League, the striker’s current conversion rate is 27.3%.
To put that in context, Aubameyang’s conversion rate for a full calendar year has never been above 25% before. Harry Kane’s conversion rate this season is 17.4%, Mohamed Salah’s is 12.7%, Sergio Aguero’s is 14.9%.
The Gabonese striker is hitting new levels with Arsenal and long may it continue. Having helped the Gunners into the top four, the 29-year-old now needs to keep scoring to keep them there, particularly with a trip to Old Trafford coming up in midweek.
As long as Unai Emery’s side create chances, hopefully, Aubameyang will be able to keep putting them away.
