Dean Saunders says Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored ‘goal of the season’ against Watford

The striker netted a ridiculously fortunate goal for the Gunners last night.

Former footballer Dean Saunders has told talkSPORT that he thinks that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the goal of the season in Arsenal’s win over Watford last night.

It is a bizarre claim to say that a goal scored by a striker closing down a goalkeeper and receiving a stroke of good fortune can possibly be held in such high regard.

Hornets stopper Ben Foster dallied on the ball and Aubameyang’s block ended up in the net.

Saunders has progressed it further and said it is even better than Mohamed Salah’s goal against Chelsea on Sunday.

 

The ex-Liverpool and Wales man made the astonishing claim on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

He told talkSPORT: “This is going to sound stupid but Aubameyang’s goal is the goal of the season. For me, I enjoyed the goal more than Mo Salah’s against Chelsea.”

TBR Verdict

Saunders is surely on the wind-up with this bizarre comment.

He did justify it by saying as a striker chasing the lost causes should be Aubameyang’s bread and butter so that makes it better. He is still completely wrong, however.

Salah’s goal was so easy on the eye against Chelsea and will probably make highlight montages for years to come.

Aubameyang’s fortunate moment just had everyone, except for Arsenal supporters, feeling desperately sorry for goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Sorry Dean, but you’re wrong here!
