Arsenal striker now joint-top PL scorer this season with 17 goals thanks to brace in thrilling 3-2 victory

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored two goals and became the top scorer of this Premier League season when Arsenal scored a 3-2 comeback win over Everton.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave Everton an acrobatic lead after 50 seconds before Eddie Nketiah scored after a cross from Bukayo Saka to equalize in the 27th minute.

Arsenal took the lead six minutes later when Aubameyang clung to David Luiz’s perfectly weighted pass before shooting past Jordan Pickford.

Everton then equalized in the first half through Richarlison’s hand-to-hand combat.

Aubameyang headed in his 17th PL goal from 2019/20 after Nicolas Pepes cross 24 seconds in the second half to bring Arsenal back in the lead.

Andre Gomes returned as a replacement after a serious ankle injury and Calvert-Lewin was rejected by a Leno when Everton pushed for compensation, but Arsenal held for two consecutive wins.

Arsenal moved up to a ninth-place with 37 points, two places, and one point ahead of Everton.
