Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not going to let fans forget about Harry Kane’s appeal to the Premier League goals accreditation panel any time soon as he poked fun at the Spurs striker again on Sunday.
The Gabon international was left on the bench for this weekend’s London derby clash with West Ham as Arsenal looked to prepare for Thursday night’s Europa League semi-final with Atletico Madrid.
Aubameyang is ineligible for selection despite not playing in the tournament this season as his former club, Borussia Dortmund, dropped down from the Champions League after the group stages.
With Arsene Wenger seemingly keen to give some more game time to Alexandre Lacazette ahead of Thursday night, Aubameyang started from the bench but was sprung into action in the 70th minute, replacing Alex Iwobi with the scores still level.
Aaron Ramsey soon restored the Gunners’ lead after his cross was inexplicably left by Hammers youngster Declan Rice.
Although the Welshman had intended to target Aubameyang, Rice’s decision not to clear the ball meant it simply bounced past Joe Hart and into the back of the net.
After the game, Aubameyang posted on Instagram joking that he was going to make an appeal to the Premier League goals accreditation panel in order to claim the goal for himself.
Kane was widely mocked for his decision to claim the goal from Christian Eriksen and it seems that Aubameyang is going to make sure that it continues.
