The votes are in and for the second time this season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been named Arsenal’s Player of the Month. With 41% of the fans’ votes, the Gabonese striker easily beat out Lucas Torreira and Sead Kolasinac for this honor.

The announcement was made today on the club’s website as well as on social media:

Aubameyang began December with a brilliant performance in the North London derby. He scored twice to help propel Arsenal to a 4-2 victory. He also provided an assist for Torreira’s first ever Arsenal goal in this match.

The same combination of Aubameyang to Torreira secured a 1-0 victory for the Gunners at home to Huddersfield on December 8th.

The striker had another brace at the Emirates in a 3-1 win over Burnley just before Christmas.

Aubameyang finished his scoring for the month with a goal away to Brighton on Boxing Day in a 1-1 draw.

Proving that he’s as cool off the pitch as on, Aubameyang posted the following Tweet after learning he was named Player of the Month.

It’s nice to know that the club’s star striker has shown accountability for the team’s poor performance at Anfield. It also shows that he has a sense of humor and can poke fun at himself.

Aubameyang is already up and running in January. He was on the score sheet for Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Fulham on New Year’s Day.
