Arsenal’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang
Arsenal host fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, having extended their unbeaten run across all competitions to 18 games on Thursday evening with a 3-0 win over Vorskla.
Aubameyang is no stranger to intense rivalries having previously played for both St.Etienne and Borussia Dortmund in their derby matches against Lyon and Schalke, as he now aims to leave his mark for Arsenal against their biggest foes.
“The rivalry is too much, but we know they are playing well,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports News. “We know that it will be a tough game but we have to be focused on what we are doing.
“We know that if we want to win we need to work a lot.
“Both teams are playing well in this moment so we feel the atmosphere and the excitement. Everybody is talking about this game. It is always special to play a derby.”
The top scorer in the English Premier League this season, Aubameyang has scored 10 goals in 17 appearances across all competitions this season.
