Arsenal’s £56million man, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has netted an impressive 6 goals in his first 7 Premier League gamesm – the best start ever for an Arsenal signing. Sergio Aguero is the only current Premier League player to have done better.
To see how PEA compares to other strikers in the PL with over 5 goals, on a minute by minute basis, please see below;
Not only is the former Borussia Dortmund striker fourth in the minutes per goal column, topping North London rival Harry Kane in the process, he is also a lot higher in the table than Arsenal teammate, Alexandre Lacazette.
The Frenchman doesn’t even feature in the top 10 and has only attained a goal every 187 minutes, compared to Aubameyang’s goal every 102 minutes.
The data table below shows how the three Arsenal strikers (Aubameyang, Lacazette and Welbeck) stack up against one another. As you’ll see below, despite two goals in yesterdays game, Danny Welbeck’s minutes per goals isn’t anywhere near close to his striker partners at Arsenal.
But could two goals yesterday show a turn in form for the man looking to find his way on to Gareth Southgate’s plane?
