Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang changes penalty technique after Tottenham

Granit Xhaka fired Arsenal ahead against United with a swerving shot that left David De Gea flatfooted.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the points with a penalty in the second half.

Aubameyang has had mixed fortunes from the penalty spot in recent weeks.

In the north London derby against Tottenham, Spurs were let off the hook when Aubameyang saw Hugo Lloris save his penalty in the final minutes of the match.

After the Man United match, Aubameyang revealed how he’s changed up different penalty technique:

I was confident, my team-mates give me a lot of confidence. Laca gave me the penalty and that was cool from him, I was really focused.

I made a mistake against Tottenham, looking down at the last moment, not watching Lloris, but today I watched until the end – and being focused you score a penalty.

I know where the ball is and you have to practice this all the time, and today it went in! I knew that it would be tough, but I was feeling confident and if I missed this one, what can I say?
