Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shares Golden Boot as Arsenal beat Burnley

Aubameyang appeared to have the Golden Boot on his mind early on as he diverted Henrikh Mkhitaryan's free-kick against the post and stung the palms of Tom Heaton inside seven minutes. The hat trick wasn't coming that would send him to the tops of the goal charts all on his own.

Of course, he wouldn't have known that at the time, as Aguero, Mane and Salah were all playing, the latter two now splitting the Golden Boots with Aubameyang. I'm a team player and if I wasn't scoring, it wouldn't have mattered.

"I was desperate for him to get it but it wasn't to be".

FW Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 8 - Arsenal's midweek hat trick hero began this game chasing the Golden Boot, and nearly made a fantastic start when his header hit the angle of the post and bar.

He missed another by inches, throwing everything at a well-placed cross.

It took just seven minutes into the second half for Arsenal to take the lead through Aubameyang, who stole the ball from Ben Mee and ran through unchallenged.

"There's going to be only 6,000 supporters for us and Chelsea but the stadium has a capacity for 70,000 so I think it's going to be full but not with our supporters or Chelsea supporters". It was much the same here.

"It's hard in the Premier League, we all know that, we've all seen sides who have started well and disappeared, and I think the strength and mentality - things that have been built over a long time here - the thing that serves you well isn't tactics, it's culture and environment". I bet if you'd have asked Aubameyang who needed the goal more, him or Nketiah, he'd have said the young man.

The Gunners headed into the game looking to end the Premier League campaign on a high ahead of their Europa League final clash against Chelsea FC at the end of the month. It capped a fantastic week for the striker, who scored five goals in the space of four days.
