Aubameyang was on hand to head home from close range to break the deadlock as he scored the first home goal in the Premier League under Mikel Arteta since he took charge as Unai Emery’s long-term successor.

As seen in the video below, the Spaniard was delighted with what he was seeing as he let his emotion out, while there were even a quick acknowledgement between coach and player.

That will no doubt delight Arsenal fans, but they’ll hope that their side can maintain this level for the full 90 minutes to pick up three crucial points as well as kicking on and putting themselves right back into the scrap for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.
