Eddie Nketiah delighted to score debut premier league goal for Arsenal

Arsenal conclude their Premier League season with a trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Sunday afternoon, but they will be without a number of players for the contest, and could choose to rest a load more.

The Gunners headed into the game looking to end the Premier League campaign on a high ahead of their Europa League final clash against Chelsea FC at the end of the month.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery knew the Europa League represents a much better chance to clinch Champions League football for next season and only Aubameyang and Nacho Monreal stayed in the starting lineup from Thursday night.

Aubameyang, who wasted another clear opportunity to add to his impressive league tally, finished with 22 goals alongside Liverpool forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at the top of the scoring charts.

The Gabon striker came within inches of winning it outright as he missed the chance of a hat-trick late on at Turf Moor.

"Yeah, it was near - but sometimes that can happen".

Aubameyang appeared to have the Golden Boot on his mind early on as he diverted Henrikh Mkhitaryan's free-kick against the post and stung the palms of Tom Heaton inside seven minutes. But I scored and I'm really happy for that.

Aubameyang was delighted to be a member of an all-African trio of winners, saying in quotes reported by the BBC: "I share this trophy with two other guys I like, great players and African".

But, if you had the choice, which of them would you have in your team?

Salah also won the prize last season.
