Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set an Arsenal record during the Gunners’ Premier League match against Norwich City on Wednesday evening.

The Gabon international has enjoyed another prolific campaign despite a turbulent season for the north London club and is in contention to land a second successive Golden Boot.

Aubameyang, who joined the Gunners in what was then a club record £56million transfer from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, brought up a half century of Premier League goals for the Gunners in just his 75th appearane, eclipsing Thierry Henry’s record.

The legendary Frenchman took 83 matches to reach his half century, but Aubameyang reached the milestone when he took advantage of a huge blunder from Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul and slotted into an empty net at the Emirates.
