Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might have scored two goals against Tottenham on Sunday and be the Premier League’s leading goalscorer in his first full season in England, but Unai Emery has called on him to improve ahead of Arsenal’s exciting trip to Old Trafford.
How well Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has adapted to life in the Premier League is something that never gets spoken about.
Here is a player who moved from the Bundesliga to a league that is meant to be the most intense in the world and he’s hardly broken his stride.
With 10 Premier League goals this season already (along with two assists from just 14 games), Aubameyang has scored more than anyone since he landed in London.
In total, he has 22 goals and six assists in his first 32 games for a new club in a new league in a foreign country. That’s impressive by anyone’s standards and I’m sure if he played for Liverpool or Spurs we’d be hearing a lot more about his record.
As it stands, he’s just going about his business. Unai Emery, meanwhile, wants more.
“I want him to continue improving — his challenge is also collective and individual,” Emery told reporters.
“I want his challenge to be that he has the possibility to be the best scorer in the league.”
