Arsenal need a second-half goal from the impressive Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to beat Burnley 2-1, and the Gabonese striker was again the hero when he scored the equalizer when Arsenal fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Tottenham. Aubameyang completed his hat-trick of home-match winners when a 10-man Arsenal team scored two late goals to overcome Aston Villa 3-2.
