Video: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Conjures Up Slick First-Half Double at Watford

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued to solidify his reputation as a fan favourite this afternoon with a really slick first-half double against Watford.

The Hornets have been struggling this season, with just one point from their opening four Premier League fixtures going into today’s clash with the Gunners, and having decided to sack manager Javi Gracia during the international break.

The Spanish coach has been replaced by his compatriot Quique Sánchez Flores, and the early stages of the game saw Watford starting brightly and creating several decent chances.

However, with Arsenal’s first shot on target, Aubameyang scored following a really neat and clever first-touch and turn:

Just a few minutes later, the Gabonese forward made it two thanks to a clam finish from close-range:

Aubameyang now has 37 goals from 54 Premier League appearances for Arsenal – not too shabby, eh?

What do you think of his strikes today?
