Arsenal are back on track after Pierre Aubameyang finds the back of the net via a penalty shootout he won in a contest against Chelsea captain Ceasar Azpilicueta.

The both captains were seen contending for an incoming ball which Azpilicueta’s slight delay to clear out opened an opportunity for Aubameyang to out run the Spanish.

While in front and advantageous on the ball, Auba drove into the 18-yard box while contesting, then a slight touch from Cesar Azpilicueta pushed him towards the ground, causing Anthony Taylor to pause the game and handed out a yellow card to the 30-year-old defender.
