Sokratis confident Aubameyang will be able to score 30 goals in Premier League
Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos believes that his team-mate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can score 30 goals in the Premier League’s this season.
Scoring a double for the Gunners in the victorious match against Burnley on Saturday (3:1), Aubameyang regained the lead in the Premier League’s goal-scorers race.
There are 12 goals already on Aubameyang’s account. Last season’s Golden Boot winner Mohamed Salah has 11 goals. Sokratis is confident that Pierre-Emerick, with whom he also happened to play at Borussia Dortmund, will only accelerate in the second half of the season.
The defender said that he knew Pierre very well. They have known each other for about 6 years already. He always scores 2-3 goals in such matches as against Burnley. Sokratis sure that the attacker will be able to subdue the mark of 30 goals. The Greek hopes that this will allow Aubameyang to win the Golden Boot in this season.
