Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was in fine form in December, so it’s no surprise that he’s been named as our Player of the Month for the second time this season.
The Gabon international kicked off December in style, scoring twice in our north London derby win against Tottenham, including a superb first-time strike from 25 yards.
Auba also claimed an assist during the derby, setting up Lucas Torreira to fire in our fourth goal of the afternoon against our rivals.
That same combination were at it again during our tense 1-0 win against Huddersfield, with Aubameyang crossing for the Uruguayan to score an acrobatic late winner.
Auba was back among the goals in our 3-1 win against Burnley, finishing off a sweeping team move to open the scoring and then doubling our lead with a fine finish in the second half.
The prolific striker was also on target in our draw against Brighton & Hove Albion on New Year’s Day, coolly slotting into the top corner after good work by Alex Lacazette.
Auba received 41 per cent of the votes cast, with Torreira and Sead Kolasinac finishing in second and third place respectively.
