After back-to-back defeats in the new season of the Premier League, Arsenal has made an amazing comeback in the League Cup tie against West Bromwich Albion. Arsenal scored 6 goals to the last season’s Premier league team. West Bromwich was having no answers to Arsenal’s 6 goals as they didn’t manage to score even a single. The last season’s Premier League team West Bromwich Albion was playing this game as a home side. But it was not a good match for the Valerien Ismael’s (West Bromwich manager) side.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was starting in this League Cup tie after missing the first two Premier League games of the new season due to COVID-19. The 32-year-old Gabonese forward made a comeback with a bang as he scored a hat-trick in this match. Aubameyang was the one who opened the scoring for Arsenal in the 17th minute. Then, just before half-time, the Gabonese professional scored the Arsenal’s and his second goal. Not only he scored a hat-trick in this match but also he registered an assist. Nicolas Pepe scored the 3rd goal for Arsenal which was assisted by Aubameyang in the 45+1 minute.
🎩 Outstanding from @Auba tonight!

In the 67th minute, Mikel Arteta brought another forward, Alexandre Lacazette, who also wasn’t involved in the first two Premier League games.
