Aubameyang wins Premier League’s Player of the Month award for September

Arsenal‘s star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been awarded the Premier League Player of the Month award for September after scoring in every match he played in.

Although only recognised for his league performances – which all included a goal – against Tottenham, Watford, Aston Villa and Manchester United, he also scored against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League.

In total, Aubameyang netted five goals in four league games to help Arsenal up to third in the Premier League table.

He is currently one goal off the top of the Golden Boot list with seven for the season, only behind Tammy Abraham and Sergio Aguero’s eight.

The Gabon international beat off the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kevin De Bruyne, Son Heung-min and Riyad Mahrez to win the award. 

Aubameyang started the month in perfect fashion with a late equalising goal to secure a draw against rivals Tottenham, before netting twice in another draw against Watford.

From there, the forward fired in a late winner against Aston Villa, before again saving his side against Manchester United to salvage a 1-1 draw.

He has failed to score in his first two October matches as he looks to retain his title, but has games against Sheffield United and Crystal Palace to turn it around.

Elsewhere, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was named September’s Manager of the Month.
