Just moments after Nicolas Pepe scored his first goal from open play for the Gunners, Arsenal found themselves in a dangerous position once again after playmaker Mesut Ozil picked out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the box.
Our captain managed to use his lovely footwork to skip away from two of West Ham’s defenders before sending the ball to Pepe with an amazing back-heel pass.
Pepe showed his amazing creativity to lift the ball back into his skipper with an inch-perfect lob. Aubameyang crowned a lovely move with a stunning acrobatic volley to secure a first victory against our London rivals.
Take a look at our skipper’s stunning volley below:
This goal by Pepe reminds me of a certain Van Persie. This is exactly what he needs to always do, take a shot at goal. Martinelli was actually my man of the match. His goal brought us back.
Aubameyang 11 goals now!

This is the kind of free-flowing attacking football that we all want to see, hopefully our next permanent boss can get our attackers firing like this consistently.
