When last year Lacazette was struggling for form Auba gave him a pen despite being on a hat trick.
Scoring yesterday’s penalty vs Villa would’ve made him level on goals with Abraham (7) but instead he gave it to Pepe to boost his confidence by getting his first Arsenal goal.
And people were saying Auba would be a bad presence in the dressing room when he signed 😂🤦♂️
Talking Points from the Aston Villa game: -Aubameyang is world class. Has saved us far to many times
-Willock has to play in the PL.He shows real energy and tenacity.
-Xhaka is way to slow. As soon as he came off,our pace and intensity became faster.
-Torreira has to start playing as a ball Winning midfield. When he came on he played that role superbly.
-Pepe is off the mark. He also looked good and is starting to show more quality.
-Callum Chambers has to start. At the moment he’s got to play Right back but when Hectors back then he has to play Centre Back.
-Guendouzi is a fighter. Shows real determination and fight to win us that game. The MOTM

Mesut Özil kembali tidak mendapatkan menit bermain dalam lanjutan pekan ke-6 Liga Inggris.
Özil hanya duduk di bangku cadangan saat Arsenal menghadapi Aston Villa.
Walaupun bermain kurang baik dan dengan 10 pemain, Arsenal mampu memenangkan pertandingan dengan skor 3-2. #arsavl#pl
Unai Emery: “Yes, it's Aubameyang who is responsible for penalties. Also Lacazette, and today for me is a very big decision from Aubameyang to let Pepe shoot to give him confidence and the possibility to score. Really, the responsibility is Aubameyang and I was happy when I saw that decision from Aubameyang. He is hungry every day to score, to achieve, individual and collective objectives. Today that decision shows a really great player." #afc
Arsenal 3-2 Aston Villa
Our first half was really poor, conceded a goal and recived a red card. -
Chambers got on for Saka who in my opinion was our best player the first half. Guendouzi stepped up massively, he got us a pen. Pepe stepped up and banged it straight down the middle. Pepe finally got his first goal for us, hope some of the preasure is gone now and he’ll start banging in goals like we’ve seen him do in League 1. Then we gave the ball away and they made 1-2 instantly after Pepe’s goal. Unai made two subs, Torreira came on for Caballos and Joe Willock for Xhaka. Then Matteo plays a great ball to Calum who scores. Minutes later we push forward and my guy Auba wins a free kick. And who if not Auba steps up and puts it in down the right corner to make it 3-2. -
Shit first half but what a comeback with 10 men. Matteo by far my man of the match. Led the team forward and acted like a leader. Won us a pen and also got an assist. The boy is just 20 years, hope we hold on tight to him because i can guarantee this boy will be a proper baller in the future. COYG❤️ -

Pierre could've slotted in the penalty and then later the free kick which would've brought him level with Aguero with 8 goals who btw has scored two Pens.
But Auba gave the Pen to Pepe so he can get his confidence up (like he did when Laca needed a goal last year).
Let down by our defence everytime but bails us out with so many crucial goals. ❤️

5 Things We Learnt From Arsenal 3-2 Aston Villa
1) Not only is Callum Chambers better than Luiz and Sokratis at CB, he is also better than Maitland Niles at RB, and should be starting every game whether it be at RB or CB🔥
2) Matteo Guendouzi is our best midfielder, he has it all and we are so lucky to have him. He showed so much passion and looks like he could be a future captain👀
3) So far this has been Aubameyang’s best season in an Arsenal Shirt. He’s starting to score goals when we are in desperate situations and is single handily winning us games on a regular basis. He wasn’t scoring this many important goals in previous seasons💪
4) Unai Emery’s tactics are costing us every week and he is only getting bailed out because we have world class attackers like Aubameyang...🙃
5) Xhaka slowed down almost every attack, with his slow passing and it is essential Torreira partners Guendouzi next week against Man Utd🔴⚪️
Amazing comeback and character shown by the boys today. I don't think that it should of been such a close game for game against Aston Villa. 😳
Our defence is a huge problem but Holding, Bellerin and Tierney should be ready next premier league game. In Aston Villa's first goal should not have happened if simple man marking was made. 😡
To win with 10 players for more than half of the game showed great perseverance from the boys. Onto Nottingham!
🗣 Emery on Aubameyang not taking the penalty: "Its Aubameyang who is responsible for penalties. Also Lacazette, & today for me is a very big decision from Aubameyang to let Pepe shoot to give him confidence & the possibility to score" 👏🔥⚽️
Look at the response from the first half performance! (First Video)
I slightly changed the name of the account to make it more inclusive so I want you to flick through the posts and give me your thoughts on the game.
What do we need to do to beat Man Utd?
Is Emery to blame for the first half performance?
Is getting a new manger now an ideal situation for us to be in?
