PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG has been the most valuable striker in the Premier League in the last four years.
And that is because his goals have won his team more points than any other player in the league.
He is the fourth-highest scorer in the Prem since February 2018 with 68 goals – behind Mo Salah, 92, Jamie Vardy, 74 and Harry Kane, 72.
But his goals have won an incredible 53 points for Arsenal, according to Opta.
That is three more points than Salah has provided Liverpool and five more than Kane at Tottenham – those two rank second and third respectively.
Vardy’s goals have contributed to just 36 points won for Leicester.
That means the Gunners have picked up 17 more points than the Foxes despite Vardy scoring six more than the former Arsenal captain.
It is no surprise Arsenal fans are desperate for the board to sign a replacement for Aubameyang, who has been excluded from the team since December.

Arteta had his eye on Dusan Vlahovic but the striker has moved to Juventus in a deal worth £62million.
Arsenal fans will be hoping sporting director Edu focuses his efforts on a new target, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alexander Isak linked.
Some fans have taken to social media to express their desire for an Aubameyang replacement, with many eyeing Isak.
One fan wrote: “Arteta and arsenal club owners must do whatever they can to grab and sign immediately this young boy Isak. He is pure Thierry Henry.”
Another added: “Arsenal we HAVE to sign Isak!!!! Make this happen.”
A third said: “I’m not fussy, I would be ecstatic if Arsenal sign any of Isak, Calvert-Lewin or Jonathan David.”
