“This is Thierry Henry, everything about it” – Aubameyang compared to Arsenal legend after goal vs Everton

Aubameyang’s finish was certainly reminiscent of the legendary Frenchman.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the man of the moment after his terrific brace in our 3-2 win over Everton on Sunday.

The prolific Gabon international produced a lovely finish to make it 2-1, and then headed in our winner in the second half to deliver an important three points.

Aubameyang’s performance earned him a place in the Premier League team of the week on BBC Sport, with Garth Crooks praising his quality and his work rate in the win at the Emirates Stadium.

It seems Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville was also impressed, as you can hear as he covers the goal in the video below:

The former right-back says what we’re all thinking about that first Auba strike – it’s pure Thierry Henry. Our new number 14 did the Gunners legend proud by pulling off his signature move so perfectly.

Let’s hope Aubameyang can keep this form up and help fire us back into contention for a Champions League place by the end of the season.


  1. Auba has always kept his form over the years and he will continue to do same for Arsenal. The numbers are there to show. This guy is simply lethal and I believe can play top soccer for 4 more years to come and still bang in goals.
    A very big mistake it will be for Arsenal to cash in on this guy.
    He has paid his dues in leaps and will do more. I hope the transformation that Arteta has brought to our team plus a couple additions will convince him of the clubs intent for glory…and when it comes to wages, give it to him no penny pinching.

  2. Over his entire career, Auba has always scored regular goals and though now thirty, he is still a world class player, the only one we have. To afford a proper replacement would be impossible with Kroenke as our owner, even if one exists. He is wiry and a natural athlete and that type tend to have a longer career than such as Laza or Giroud, who are more muscular and not wiry. He would have three, possibly four, more top seasons in we can keep him. For what we could sell him for at his age of 30, it is imperative we give him whatever wage he needs to keep him here for his effective remainder of his career. Football is as much about keeping and maximising the stay of your real starat as buying new players. It is also about getting rid of deadwood but that is a separate point, well versed by many other Gooners already.
