Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been crowned Arsenal Player of the Month for December.

The Reds battered Unai Emery's side at Anfield with a performance of relentless endevour and devastating attacking play.

Meanwhile, the former Borussia Dortmund talisman narrowly lost the Goal of the Month award to Henrikh Mkhitaryan's effort against Southampton as his second goal against Tottenham ended as the second best for the month.

However, their striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was among the goals for Arsenal, as he netted in on five occasions and assisted twice throughout the month.

While Aubameyang happily accepted the award, he also made a remark on the game against Liverpool, where he was performed particularly badly.

The Gunners tweeted out the news earlier today, only for Aubameyang to hit back with mixed feelings.

Aubameyang was particularly quiet in the match, as the Gabon worldwide striker managed just 13 total touches, six of which came from kick-offs.

This was enough for him to be recognised for the CAF 2018 African Player of the Year award, as he was placed in the final three alongside Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The striker acknowledged that he performed badly at Anfield against the league leaders, going to the extent of calling his performance "sh**". "Apart from that sh*t game in Liverpool in was a good month".

The striker has been in red-hot form for most of the season, as he tops the Premier League scoring charts with 14 goals, sharing the league lead with Harry Kane.
