Aaron Ramsey compared Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal great Thierry Henry after the striker scores twice to beat Tottenham in the north London derby on Sunday. The club-record signing put Arsenal ahead with a 10th minute from the penalty spot before hitting a stunning equaliser after the break as the Gunners went on to win 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium.
Aubemayang’s performance, which made him the Premier League’s leading marksman for the season with 10 goals, prompted the highest of praise from his team-mate Aaron Ramsey, who was reminded of Arsenal’s all-time record scorer Henry.
“It was unbelievable but he does that in training all the time,” said Ramsey of the equalising strike.
“He just eases the ball into the corners but with pace as well. It reminds me of Thierry Henry’s finishes,” Ramsey added on Arsenal’s official website.
“After the first goal we conceded, we had a moment where we were a bit down. At half-time we were confident. We spoke and we knew that we could do it in the second half, to come back,” Aubameyang himself noted.
