Martin Keown believes that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be struggling to believe his luck with the wealth of attacking talent at his disposal at Arsenal.

The Gabon international has been getting used to life at The Emirates in recent days as he bids to try and help Arsenal enjoy a successful end to the season under Arsene Wenger.

Aubameyang signed for the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund last week and he has linked up with his former team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan at The Emirates.

The 28-year-old looked in fine form as he scored his first goal for the Gunners with a dinked finish in the 5-1 win over Everton in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

And former Arsenal defender Keown reckons Aubameyang won’t be able to believe his luck at how many creative players are around him at The Emirates.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday night, Keown said: “This guy [Aubameyang] at the front, he can’t believe it.

“He’s come to Arsenal and has got Mesut Ozil giving him supplies, Henrikh Mkhitaryan… he doesn’t know who to look to first for him to score his goals from!”

Arsenal now turn their attentions towards their crunch Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners are in sixth place in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification for next season.

Arsenal will take on Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
