Arsenal striker Aubameyang can surpass his own record with goals against Burnley
Arsenal travel to Burnley this weekend for what is always a tough test for the Gunners and any other Premier League team for that matter.
The Clarets will be buoyed by the new deal for manager Sean Dyche, who has once again committed his future to the club. Arsenal, then, will have to expect the usual scrap and fight at Turf Moor.
But after winning 1-0 against Norwich last time out and breaking their duck for the season, Arsenal will have an element of confidence themselves.
After winning ten games in a row against the Clarets, the Gunners have not actually won any of the last three meetings. Both the last two fixtures at Turf Moor have ended in a draw, while December’s clash at the Emirates saw Burnley win out 1-0.
However, aside from the team effort, Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be targeting the game for a personal milestone of his own.
Aubameyang to break record against Burnley?
After getting himself off the mark against Norwich, Aubameyang will know the responsibility that rests on his shoulders for Arsenal.
But he can have confidence going into the game with Burnley and will be hoping his remarkable run against them can continue. Per a report from Premierleague.com today, Aubameyang certainly enjoys playing against Sean Dyche’s men.
In fact, should he score tonight, he will equal the nine goals he has scored against Hamburg during his career. So far, Aubameyang has notched eight goals in seven games against the Clarets.
Naturally, the Gabon star will be looking at that stat with a smile. Arsenal fans, too, will be hoping to see their skipper fire them to a big three points at Turf Moor this evening.
