London [UK], July 2 (ANI): Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Wednesday became the club's fastest player to score 50 Premier League goals.
Aubameyang achieved the feat during Arsenal's clash against Norwich City which was Gabon international's 79th appearance for the club. He scored twice during the match and took his tally to 51 goals.
