Ray Palour reacts to Aubameyang’s goal in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace
Ray Parlour was impressed with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's finish in Arsenal's 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday
Ray Parlour heaped praise on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for his goal in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Gabon international started on the left wing in support of Alexandre Lacazette, who was preferred in a central role.
Aubameyang complete an Arsenal move that involved 18 passes before the African striker slotted past Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.
The 30-year-old has scored 14 times in the Premier League this season – only Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has netted more goals than the Arsenal star.
Former Arsenal midfielder Parlour took to Twitter to praise Aubameyang’s finish at Selhurst Park.
Parlour wrote: “Great goal @Aubameyang7 1 0 😁”
Arsenal were unable to secure their second Premier League victory under Mikel Arteta after Jordan Ayew levelled in the 54th minute.
And Aubameyang’s afternoon ended on a sour note when he was sent off by the video assistant referee for a tackle on Max Meyer.
Outspoken Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan was initially upset with the decision.
Morgan wrote: “WHAT? Another pathetic VAR fiasco. That was a poor challenge but no malice intended & a booking at worst… @Aubameyang7 is not a dirty player. Ridiculous.”
However, upon further inspection, Morgan appeared to change his mind.
Morgan added: “Perhaps I was a little hasty…”
Arsenal are in 10th position in the Premier League table after their 1-1 draw with Palace.
The Eagles remain one point above their north London rivals following their draw.
Arsenal appointed Arteta as Unai Emery’s replacement last month after the Spaniard’s 18-month stint in charge.
