Arsenal’s record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was compared to the club’s all-time great striker Thierry Henry after his double set the stage for his side’s pulsating 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on Sunday.
The Gabonese, who signed from Borussia Dortmund in January for £56 million, put Arsenal ahead with a 10th minute penalty and in the second-half pulled them level with a dazzling strike after they had gone 2-1 behind.
Aubemayang’s performance, which made him the Premier League’s leading marksman for the season with 10 goals, prompted the highest of praise from his teammate Aaron Ramsey, who was reminded of Arsenal’s all-time record scorer Henry.
“It was unbelievable but he does that in training all the time,” said Ramsey of the first-time strike that made it 2-2.
“He just eases the ball into the corners but with pace as well. It reminds me of Thierry Henry’s finishes,” Ramsey added on Arsenal’s official website.
