What Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Did After Alexandre Lacazette Scored Penalty
Arsenal fans loved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's selfless act for Alexandre Lacazette.
The Gabonese striker opened the scoring in the Premier League fixture against Stoke City through the spot, before doubling his goal tally.
Alexandre Lacazette, who's returning from minor knee surgery, entered the fray and was awarded a penalty.
Fans were expecting Aubameyang to step up so he could complete his first Arsenal hat-trick.
Though, he gave up the opportunity so his French strike partner could get on the score sheet.
After Lacazette converted the spot-kick, Aubameyang was the first to congratulate him.
#afc 3-0 Stoke Lacazette scores from the spot. Denies Aubameyang a chance for his hat-trick in the process. Aubameyang the first one to celebrate with him, however.

Aubameyang gave Lacazette the chance to take the penalty despite having the chance to score a Hat-Trick. If it was Alexis he would've thrown a tantrum :sob: #ARSSTK
