‘Class is permanent!’ – Arsenal fans go crazy as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scores first hat-trick of 2021

Published

on

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has turned on the style for Arsenal this afternoon, scoring three times in their clash with Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium

It has been an afternoon to remember for Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

After being recalled to the starting line-up, the Gabon international has repaid the faith Mikel Arteta has shown in him by netting the first Premier League hat-trick of his Arsenal career.

The striker, deployed in the central role at the expense of Alexandre Lacazette, who was dropped to the bench for this afternoon’s tussle with Leeds United, opened his account for the afternoon by cutting inside and unleashing a low, powerful effort beyond the reach of Ilan Meslier in the Whites goal.

For his second, the former Borussia Dortmund man dispatched a well-taken penalty after Bukayo Saka was fouled inside the penalty area by Meslier. After right-back Hector Bellerin ensured Arsenal headed into the half time interval 3-0 up, Aubameyang picked up where he left off just two minutes into the second half, heading home his third and the Gunners’ fourth after Emile Smith Rowe picked him out inside the box with an intelligent cross.

After being left out of the starting XI for the last two matches, which saw the Gunners defeated by both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa, it has proven to be the perfect response from the Gabon ace, who has caused continuous problems for Leeds centre-backs Luke Ayling and Liam Cooper throughout the afternoon.

But whilst Leeds have struggled to handle Aubameyang’s presence, he, Arteta and the Gunners supporters will not care, as they will now be hoping that his three-goal haul can act as a catalyst for the remainder of the season.

As expected, Aubameyang’s treble has sparked no shortage of comments from Arsenal fans on social media. With that in mind, here is a close look at what some of them have had to say.

Aubameyang’s three-goal haul this afternoon has meant that he has scored as many goals in 90 minutes as he had managed in his last seven Premier League appearances, suggesting that his exploits this afternoon could be key in him rediscovering his golden touch in front of goal that Arsenal were able to rely on so often last season.

At the time of writing, Aubameyang’s tally of goals for the season, in all competitions, now stands at 11 in 23 appearances.

Since Aubameyang netted his third and Arsenal’s fourth, however, Leeds have shown signs of a recovery, scoring twice, once through a powerful header from Pascal Struijk and a second via substitute Helder Costa.
