Aubameyang wins PL Player of the Month

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wins Premier League Player of the Month for September

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for September after scoring five goals in four matches.

The Arsenal striker topped an eight-man shortlist after a vote by the public, as well as by the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts.

Aubameyang’s goals during September were worth five points to Arsenal – he scored twice in their 2-2 draw at Watford, the equalisers in draws with Tottenham and Manchester United and the late winner with a free-kick against Aston Villa.

The 30-year-old – who was the joint Golden Boot winner last season – now has seven goals for the campaign, which puts him behind only Tammy Abraham and Sergio Aguero in the scorers’ charts.
