Quick Reads

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally rediscovered his goalscoring form by netting a hat-trick as Arsenal beat Leeds United 4-2. 

While it’s not been the most prolific season for Arsenal’s captain and talisman, he delivered as they won an end-to-end thriller against Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

We’ve collected seven eye-catching stats following his impressive performance at the Emirates.

– Aubameyang was clinical in front of goal, scoring three goals from just three big chances against Leeds.
