Press conference

'The biggest game of my Arsenal career? Maybe'

It is almost exactly two years to the day since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hat-trick against Valencia in the second leg of a Europa League semi-final.

Now our captain will be looking for another big performance - both individually and collectively - when we face Villarreal on Thursday night.

"Definitely it was a good performance [against Valencia] and it was a big game as well," Aubameyang said. "Yes I think it was my best performance since I’ve been here at Arsenal. It was really great game, hopefully I can do it tomorrow again!

"I think I was really motivated in these types of games because a few times I have received some criticism of not being involved in big games, so I wanted to show people that it’s not true. 

"This is why I am really excited to play this game tomorrow because it is a big game and it’s a big moment for all of us. Hopefully we deliver again.

"For sure it will be one of [the biggest games of my Arsenal career]. Definitely this season is the most important game and we know that we have to win this game. 

"It is a big opportunity for us to get to the final, we play at home and this is maybe the biggest game of my Arsenal career."
