Remarkable Arsenal vs Barcelona Aubameyang statistic unveiled after latest Blaugrana goal


 

A head-turning statistic surrounding the production of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang since swapping Arsenal for Barcelona has come to the fore on Sunday evening.

Gabonese hitman Aubameyang, of course, opted to bring a close to the Gunners chapter of his career late last month, taking his talents to Catalunya to link up with Xavi Hernandez's Barca as a free agent.

And, safe to say, the 32-year-old has since enjoyed an encouraging start to life in Blaugrana colours.

Before tonight, 'Auba' had found the back of the net four times across his first three starts, including a hat-trick en route to a 4-1 triumph at Valencia last weekend.

This comes with Aubameyang, afforded his latest start by Xavi in Barcelona's La Liga meeting with Athletic Club on Sunday, having managed to find the net once more.
