Garth Crooks named Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the BBC Premier League Team of the Season this week. He wrote that the striker is “the key” to any Arsenal success and “they must keep him at all costs”.

The article also mentions that Aubameyang is the first Arsenal player to score 20+ goals in consecutive Premier League seasons since Thierry Henry, which is a great stat.

When you think about all the players Arsenal had in between, particularly the likes of Robin van Persie and Alexis Sanchez, it’s crazy that none of them ever hit 20 league goals twice in a row.

Although, with those two, it’s because they both jumped ship as soon as they did it for the first time.

There’s no doubt Aubameyang deserves his spot in the team, for me. 22 goals and three assists is another impressive return in the league. Particularly given Arsenal were the opposite of impressive for most of the season.

The season isn’t over for him yet. After two goals in the FA Cup semi-final, Arsenal fans will hope for another one or two to lift the trophy this weekend.
