It’s not news to Arsenal fans that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang misses big chances. It happens every game.
However, do you know that he’s missed more big chances than goals scored?

20 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Since arriving at Arsenal, Auba has scored a total of 34 goals (with 11 assists) in 59 games.
That’s a goal involvement rate of 1.31.
To compare, Harry Kane has a GIR 1.31 while Mo Salah has a GIR of 1.04 and Sergio Aguero 1.12, albeit with a larger sample size of games for those three who are also not in their first full season in England.
As long as Auba keeps finding the back of the net as regularly as he does, he can miss all the other chances he wants.
