Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored against Manchester United, ending a mini-drought in the league and taking him to 74 goals for Arsenal, so where does he rank on the list of Arsenal’s all-time greatest goalscorers?

Aubameyang is currently 10th highest goalscorer in the history of Arsenal during the Premier League era, moving ahead of Freddie Ljungberg with his goal against Fulham. He needs just another eight goals to equal Alexis Sanchez’s 80.

But where does he rank when you bring in players who played for the club before the Premier League started as well?

With Auba expected to stay at Arsenal for another three years, if we estimate he will score 20-a-year at the club, a conservative estimate for sure, he would equal Robin van Persie’s total.

The smart money is on Aubameyang to knock the Dutch Skunk further down the list. He might even be able to catch Lishman, Drake and Brain.

As it stands, another six and he will overtake Alexis Sanchez who scored 80 goals for Arsenal in 166 games.

Auba has played for the club 118 times.
