Arsenal sealed a 3-0 win over Newcastle on Monday, and while there were a number of eye-catching displays, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the man of the match after a couple of goals.

On an evening upon which Emile Smith-Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Thomas Partey distinguished themselves, the cutting edge was ultimately added by the Gabon striker, who continued his improving form.

Aubameyang: What Next?

Arsenal have an FA Cup tie on Saturday against an opponent that they do not yet know. Aubameyang may be rested for that game but he will expect to be back for their next Premier League outing with Southampton as they chase the top four.

If the Gunners are to achieve that goal, they need Aubameyang playing at this level.
