It was never really in doubt and so it proved as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deservedly wins the Arsenal player of the month award.
The Gabon international found the back of the net on two occasions in August, grabbing his first in the opening day win over Newcastle United at St James Park.
He then scored the winner against Burnley in the first game of the season at the Emirates with a beautiful and simply unstoppable shot.
The 30-year-old did not score in the final August game but he did assist Lucas Torreira in the 3-1 loss against Liverpool at Anfield.
Young Joe Willock was second in the voting and another youngster Matteo Guendouzi, claimed the third spot, as listed on Arsenal.com
? Not just our Goal of the Month winner…

Aubameyang was the clear favourite after his blistering start to the 2019/20 season and has taken his August form into September, grabbing the equaliser in the 2-2 draw against bitter North London rivals, Tottenham.
