Aubameyang sends message to the Premier League after debut

  Aubameyang sends message to the Premier League after debut New Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has sent a warning message to the rest of the Premier League following his impressive debut against Everton. Speaking to the club’s official website, Aubameyang admitted that the best is yet to come after the Gabon striker scored on his first Premier League start. “Of course I was really happy. We won the game in the first half and the second was a bit different. We are all happy. Is there more to come from me? I think so.” The former Borussia Dortmund forward was not expected to start against Everton, but he showed Arsenal fans a glimpse of what is to come. Aubameyang linked up brilliantly with fellow new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with the latter setting up three of the five goals. It was Aubameyang who scored Arsenal’s fourth of the game with a delicate effort, lifting the ball over the outrushing Jordan Pickford, despite some calls for offside. There had been some concerns about how Arsene Wenger would fit the likes of Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette all in one team, but the latter started on the bench.

Ozil's new deal is like a new signing says Bellerin

  Ozil's new deal is like a new signing says Bellerin Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin says Mesut Ozil’s decision to stay at the club feels like a new signing. The London Evening Standard reports that the Bellerin described the news as a boost for everyone at the Emirates. “Everyone in the training ground, everyone in the team knew he was going to stay. He is a guy that loves London, loves Arsenal and he always gets really angry when things don’t go well so you know how much it means for him to win or lose for this club. So I think everyone in the club, the dressing room was sure.” “It is as exciting as a new signing. To have a player with his qualities and all he brings to the team to sign for a few more years, it is really exciting for Arsenal and for the fans.” The German playmaker was heavily linked with a move away from the club as he entered the final months of his contract. Both he and Alexis Sanchez were both expected to leave the club for nothing in the summer. Sanchez went on to join Manchester United in the January transfer window, however, Ozil opted to sign a new deal, extending his stay at the Emirates. After signing the new deal, Ozil impressed for the Gunners in their 5-1 victory over Emirates, playing a key role alongside new signings Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gunners know that they have a task on their hands to finish inside the top four. They currently sit five points behind Chelsea, who play Watford on Monday night.
