With eight goals already in the EPL this season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is sternly in the race to be the Premier League top goal scorer by the end of the season.
The 30-year-old striker’s impressive form has caught the eye. With the EPL Top goal scorers odds placing the Gabonese high on the race for another golden boot. Bookmakers know a thing or two about how to choose odds for players and everything happens for a reason. It seems like he has a very high potential of getting to the top of the charts – if not actually winning the precious title.
However, the striker is not alone in the race, sitting fourth and only behind Jamie Vardy (10), Tammy Abraham (9) and Sergio Aguero (9) on the Premier League goal chart.
Aubameyang is solely the driving force at Arsenal, with teammate Alexander Lacazette way down the log in 38th place with just two goals in the current season.
The Gabonese striker will be hoping to lay claim to the title, for the second season running, but with Arsenal struggling on both form and points, the 30-year-old may find his quest a tad too difficult this time.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Sergio Aguero could all lay strong claims to the title, including Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Chelsea’s young and aspiring Tammy Abraham. The odds also play in favor of Harry Kane who is still very much in the league of the English most lethal strikers.
Aubameyang is the only one of last season’s top goal scorers currently in the top three this season. With Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah sitting 6th and 9th with six and five goals respectively after ten matches.
The 30-year-old has single-handedly carried this Arsenal side, with the striker having solely gifted Unai Emery’s side all three points in several matches this season.
Arsenal could void Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of becoming Epl top goalscorer this season
Aubameyang would need no more and no less to lay his claim as one of Premier League’s most feared strikers. However, many would argue his current club Arsenal could hinder his prowess.
With over 50 percent of Arsenal’s total offensive output down to the striker, it’s safe to say the North London club would crumble without his services.
Emerick carries over the momentum from last season but will need more than a struggling Arsenal team to challenge for the prize this time.
The odds still stand in his favor, but with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Jamie Vardy and the whole bunch stepping up the game, his chances of retaining the award is slowly diminishing.
Probably something no Arsenal fan would love to hear, but the rumors won’t stop on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s potential leave from Arsenal at the end of the current contract.
The 30-year-old is fed up playing in the second tier of European competition, with Arsenal struggling to make a statement under Unai Emery in the domestic League.
Aubameyang wants out, his goals aren’t drying up anytime soon, but the lack of like minds have deprived the striker of his honorable status in football, as well as trophies.
The striker wants more goals, but most of all he wants to score on the grandest stage of all, a place he has been deprived of for a long time now, ‘The Champions League’.
