What was Aubameyang's overall display like?
📷 Match Snapshot
It took the Gunners time to get going as they spent the first third of their match as Norwich looked comfortable and stepped onto the front foot.
But Aubameyang always looked their most likely source for the opening goal, testing Tim Krul with a curled effort to the bottom right corner which was palmed away by the goalkeeper.
Ten minutes later, though, Krul wasn't so formidable.
⚽ ⏱️ 33' The Dutch goalkeeper inexplicably attempted to take a touch beyond the onrushing Aubameyang, who stole possession from his toe to slide the ball into the empty net.
That was his 50th goal for the club, a milestone he reached faster than anyone, including legends Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie.
ASSIST⏱️ 33' Four minutes later, he would turn provider, with a stabbed pass into the centre of the box with the outside of his boot for Granit Xhaka to lash a finish into the left corner.
⚽ ⏱️ 67' Norwich were very accommodating to Aubameyang on the night, as it was another error at the back which allowed the Arsenal hitman to pounce on a loose ball inside the box before confidently finishing into the bottom left corner.
The two goals were from four shots which he had on goal, with all of them going on target and with six touches inside the opposition penalty area, he outperformed every other player in that metric.

As we approach the end of the season, speculation will only increase on Aubameyang's future and whether he will remain at the club beyond the summer.
The dynamic forward is now top scorer in the Premier League and that will likely only increase speculation further for a player who really deserves to be playing Champions League football.
With Arsenal's squad needing something of a rebuild, fans may have to come to terms with the fact that they may have witnessed him play his last game for the Gunners in person.
