Arsenal stars hailed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as their ‘GOAT’ after the striker inspired them to FA Cup glory yesterday.
Aubameyang’s two goals helped the Gunners come from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 in Saturday’s all-important final, with his 28th-minute penalty first drawing them level after Christian Pulisic’s early opener.
And with just under 25 minutes remaining, the Gabon international produced a neat finish from close range to hand Mikel Arteta his first trophy as a manager.
Mateo Kovacic was then sent off for Chelsea six minutes later, meaning Arsenal could see out victory with an extra man.

The north London club put in an assured display to claim their 14th FA Cup, but it was Aubameyang who stole the show with another match-winning performance.
He scored 29 goals in 44 appearances this term, with 22 of those goals coming in the Premier League, and Gunners stars were quick to label him the ‘GOAT’ at full time.

On Bukayo Saka’s Instagram story last night, Aubameyang can be seen posing in front of a goat picture that’s being held above his head in the Wembley dressing room, before bursting into laughter with his team-mates.
Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether the 31-year-old commits his future to Arsenal after heading into the final year of his contract.
