The Gabonese striker has now scored 5 goals so far to what has been an incredibly slow-scoring start to his 2020-21 campaign.

On the EPL scoring chart, Auba now moves to 18th equalled with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, El Ghazi, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, James Maddison, Tomas Soucek and David McGoldrick

Ten minutes later, Bukayo Saka made it 2-0 with a confident slot home after good work down the left flank from youngster Emile Smith Rowe.

Aubameyang completed the comfortable victory after Cedric Soares got to the byline and pulled the ball back into his path.

Arsenal now moves to 10th on the log ahead of Aston Villa - though Villa has 3 games outstanding, while Newcastle remains at 15th failing to move past Wolves.
