Former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, has singled out Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, following their 1-0 win over Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday.
Aubameyang controlled Maitland-Niles’ expertly, before lifting the ball over goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka.
Speaking as a pundit on SuperSport, former Everton defender Yobo called the Gabon striker a world class player and added that Arsenal are guaranteed goals with Aubameyang in the team.
“He intercepted the ball, very perfect cross, that’s a goal for Aubameyang, he is a top, world-class player.
“He has proven himself last season with the amount of goals that he scored. The first touch was good but to dink the ball over the goalkeeper, that is a special talent, that is something very skillful that he had to do if not there was no chance.
“He is someone that will always score goals for Arsenal, Arsenal need him,” Yobo said.
Since Aubameyang made his Premier League debut in February 2018, only Mohamed Salah (36) has scored more goals in the competition than him (33).
