Martin Keown said on BT Sports 1 (10pm, April 8, 2021) that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang played well for Arsenal tonight.

The Arsenal legend believes Aubameyang was up to the task after entering as a substitute against Slavia Prague in the Europa League tie at the Emirates Stadium.

The 31-year-old hasn’t been in great shape this season, and manager Mikel Arteta decided to leave him on the substitute bench.

Alexandre Lacazette started down the middle in his place, and the French international failed to score from a very good position in the second half.

Aubameyang came on as a substitute for Lacazette in the 78th minute, and the Arsenal captain assisted Nicolas Pepe to put the Gunners ahead in the 86th minute.

Keown said about Aubameyang on BT Sports 1 (10pm, April 8, 2021): “Aubameyang coming out of the bank, he really looked like he was ready for it, he was the real Aubameyang we saw when he came in.”
