Arsenal stunned the football narrative by winning two-nil against Manchester United, proving that Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer isn’t some sort of invincible genius and, after the game, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spoke to Sky Sports.
Ahead of the game, it was clear. OGS was going to stake yet another claim for the United job on a permanent basis. The Mail on Sunday devoted all their pre-match coverage to United to the point they ignored Arsenal completely.
But there was no ignoring Arsenal on the day.
They outworked and outfought United, and, while they rode their luck at times, they took their chances and saw out the game.
Speaking after the final whistle, Auba explained what went wrong with his penalty against Spurs, what he did differently for this one, and how his teammates helped him keep the faith.
“[I feel] very good,” he said.
“I was confident, you know. My teammates gave me a lot of confidence. Laca gave me the penalty, that was good from him.
“I was really focused. I did a mistake against Tottenham, I looked down at the last minute, I didn’t look at Lloris. Today I looked at de Gea.
“We practice this all the time. Today it went in.
“I knew that it would be tough but as I said before, I was really confident and if I missed this one, yeah…”
This week Auba also revealed that he is considering making a major career change and you can read more about that here.
