INCREDIBLE! Arsenal target has more goals from counter-attacks than most PL clubs

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Arsenal target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored more league goals on the counter-attack since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2013 than most Premier League clubs have in the same period, stats from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com reveal. 
 
We have taken a closer look at what Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would bring to Arsenal if he moves to the Emirates and one stat stands out more than any other, his ability to score on the counter-attack. 
 

 
Since 2013, the Gabon striker has netted 15 goals in the Bundesliga from counter-attacks. In the same period, Arsenal have managed just 10 goals from counter-attacks. In fact, only four Premier League clubs (Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Leicester City) have scored more counter-attacking goals than Aubameyang since he joined Borussia Dortmund. 
 
Having also been linked to Jamie Vardy who has netted a respectable 11 goals from counter-attacks in the Premier League, it appears Arsene Wenger is looking to adopt a more direct style at Arsenal.
 
Landing a player that has mastered the art of counter-attacking in the form of Aubameyang could be a step in the right direction to life after Alexis Sanchez.
