Aubameyang confident of catching Salah, Aguero in Golden Boot race

Aubameyang confident of catching Salah, Aguero in Golden Boot race

16 Apr 2019, 06:10

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has his sights set on catching Sergio Aguero and Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot after his opportunistic goal downed Watford.

Aubameyang moved on to 18 Premier League goals with his winner and is now within one of Golden Boot leaders Salah and Aguero, while Liverpool's Sadio Mane is level with the Gabon international.

Former Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang was the Bundesliga's leading scorer in 2016-17 after netting 31 times and he feels he can chase down Aguero and Salah despite games running out fast.

"Yeah, why not. I feel confident," Aubameyang told Sky Sports when asked if he could claim the Golden Boot. "The race is going on. I know it's a tough battle. I'm confident that I will carry on.

"I was confident. It's a long time I wanted to score a goal like this. Tonight, it went through. I was confident. Normally, goalkeepers, they don't really know if you're coming back to them. It was a good goal for me, I like it."

Aubameyang capitalized on goalkeeper Ben Foster's lapse in concentration in the 10th minute at Vicarage Road on Monday, earning a win that moved the Gunners up to fourth in the table.

Red Card

Troy Deeney's red card shortly after the goal gave Watford a mountain to climb but Javi Gracia's side hit the woodwork twice, Bernd Leno turning Craig Cathcart's effort on to the post and Adam Masina's drive clipping the crossbar.

Arsenal held on against the 10 men for their first away clean sheet in the Premier League this season, giving Unai Emery's men a boost ahead of the second leg of their upcoming Europa League quarter-final with Napoli.
