A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been named the Premier League Player of the Month for September.

The 30-year-old scored five goals in four league appearances for the Gunners last month, beginning with the equaliser against bitter rivals Tottenham at the start of September.

Aubameyang then notched up an impressive brace against Watford - also a 2-2 draw - and struck the winner against Aston Villa, a late free kick to defeat the newly promoted side.

 

The Gabon international's stunning month was wrapped up with another equaliser, this time away at Manchester United, and given his exploits, it's unsurprising that he topped the public vote.

Here is some of the Arsenal fan reaction - plus a comment from strike partner Alexandre Lacazette - to the club announcing the good news on their social media feed:

Aubameyang beat Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kevin de Bruyne, Son Heung-min and Riyad Mahrez to the award.

Up next for Unai Emery's charges after the international break comes to an end is the Premier League trip to Sheffield United a week on Monday.
