Arsenal 3-0 Stoke City: match report
Aubameyang's double leaves relegation-threated Potters with nothing from the game.
There was almost nothing to report from an uneventful first half. Xherdan Shaqiri's effort went just wide, while at the other end of the field Ramsey saw a header go off the top of the bar.
In the second half Arsenal improved, with Danny Welbeck striking wide before Mohamed Elneny saw his effort blocked, while Nacho Monreal's shot was saved by Jack Butland. However, Stoke was the first to come close to scoring. Shaqiri's corner delivery went past everyone and hit the far post.
Aubameyang then missed a great opportunity to score after Mesut Ozil played him in, but Butland was equal to the Gabon striker's effort to lift the ball over him.
Arsenal finally opened the score 15 minutes from time when Bruno Martins Indi brought down Ozil inside the area, and Aubameyang sent Stoke's goalkeeper the wrong way with the kick from the spot.
Ozil was close to scoring himself four minutes from time, but Butland sent the effort to the corner, from which Aubameyang then netted his second goal, finishing well with a first-touch shot.
To make things even better for the Gunners. Stoke conceded another penalty on the 89th minute, when Badou Ndiaye pushed substitute Alexandre Lacazette over with no apparent reason. But Aubameyang didn't step up to complete his hat trick, given the ball to Lacazette to send it in the back of the net.
