Could Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang outscore Thierry Henry?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has made a fine start to his Arsenal career.

The Gabon international arrived at the Emirates Stadium in January of this year and quickly set about doing what he does best; score goals.

Last season he plundered 10 Premier League goals for the Gunners in just 13 appearances following his club-record £56 million (BBC Sport).

This term, he’s already reached 10 in 15 matches, and many have tipped him to go on and win the golden boot ahead of the likes of Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah.

Put simply, Aubameyang has looked nothing but lethal since pitching up in north London, and there’s absolutely no reason why he can’t do something incredible this season.

His intelligence to get into goalscoring postions while not even playing as an out-and-out striker at times is remarkable, and something that should run him close to Thierry Henry’s 30-goal haul back in the 2003/04 season.

 

The club’s record goalscorer was scintillating that year, with nearly everything he touched turning into a goal.

Aubameyang looks razor-sharp for Arsenal and has done since he walked through the door.

He’s yet to hit a dry spell which is massively encouraging.

The comparisons between he and Henry are plainly obvious, although the player has moved to dismiss them having not been around that long.

If Aubameyang can remain fit then he’ll certainly have a good chance. Henry missed just one game in the 2003/04 season meaning he was basically ever-present to be able to score all those goals.
