Aubameyang next to Overmars in Arsenal’s Premier League ranks

The 31-year-old’s opener against the Hornets was close to the feat achieved by the former Dutch international during his time with the Gunners

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal for Arsenal in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Watford was the Gunners’ earliest English top-flight strike since Marc Overmars in 1999.

With just five minutes into the clash against Hayden Mullins, the Gabon international beat goalkeeper Ben Foster from the penalty spot after defender Craig Dawson crashed into French international Alexandre Lacazette.

That strike ensured that the Gunners’ captain moved closer to the ex-Arsenal star’s feat achieved in April 1999 when he scored against Middlesbrough after just four minutes.
