Arsenal secured a winning start to the 2019/20 campaign last weekend when they defeated Newcastle United 1-0 at St James’ Park.
The Gunners’ win came courtesy of a goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is very much the first-choice striker for Unai Emery’s team.
The Gabonese talisman will hope to have a sound goalscoring campaign again after his 31-goals in all competitions last season.
With Alexandre Lacazette competing for a starting spot, Aubameyang will know he needs to stay in good form.
Therefore, a game against Burnley probably gives the Arsenal striker the ideal chance to add to his tally for the campaign.
Since arriving in English football Aubameyang has loved playing against Burnley.
In three outings against Sean Dyche’s team, he has scored a remarkable six goals (two in each game played) and he will hope to add to that impressive tally this weekend.
The 30-year-old has been a revelation at the Emirates Stadium since his £56 million move from Borussia Dortmund (BBC Sport).
He is the natural-born goalscorer that the club has craved for years and he will hope to finally fire Unai Emery’s team into the Champions League this season.
Burnley got their season off to a flyer with a 3-0 win over Southampton on the opening day of the season.
Their hopes of a good result at the Emirates on Saturday seemingly hinge on whether or not they can finally get to grips with the lethal Aubameyang.
Failure to do so and his record against the Clarets may look even more impressive come Saturday afternoon.
