Another Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal has us recalling Arsenal’s other legendary No. 14.

The French-born Gabonese international brought to mind Thierry Henry with his first goal of this young Premier League season on Saturday, a player given a bit too much room given his class.

Aubameyang, 31, collected the ball on the left side of the box and the smooth, clinical nature with which he advanced toward goal under the watch of American back Tim Ream strongly hinted at a goal.

Sure enough, Aubameyang laced a powerful shot across goal and into the upper reaches of the side netting to expand Arsenal’s lead to 3-0.

The goal is his 72nd in 111 appearances for the Gunners. Aubameyang joins Gabriel Magalhaes and Alexandre Lacazette on the score sheet at Craven Cottage.
