Who else if not Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ? Arsenal’s talisman was on fire again in FA Cup. As he netted a brace to clinch Gunners, their 14th FA Cup trophy over Chelsea Sunday night.
Despite a quick Chelsea goal scored by Christian Pulisic at the 5th minute, Aubameyang rushed into Caballero’s box before being hooked by Azpilicueta to benefit a penalty.
Unsurprisingly, Gabon international beat Blues’ shot-stopper to score the equalizer. With a 1-1 scoreline at half-time, a strong Mikel Arteta speech transcended Gunners and especially Auba.
The 31-year-old scored a second goal for Arsenal at the 63rd minute with a stung over Willy Caballero.
However, Frank Lampard side got red card as Mateo Kovacic was sent out after a foul committed on Granit Xhaka. Arsenal won it to 2-1.
Moreover, this FA Cup trophy gave Arsenal a ticket for 2020/21 Europa League. Now debates over the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Emirates Stadium will resurface.
