Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is confident that the Gunners will return to the Champions League stage next season via a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The Gabonese international player was speaking after he helped the Gunners to a priceless 2-0 win over rivals Manchester United at home.

Aubameyang told reporters that the spirit in the Arsenal team is good before adding that the players believe they can qualify for Champions League football at the end of the season.

The former Borussia Dortmund attacker showed immense courage to take another high profile penalty after his miss from the spot against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Gunners’ penultimate league game.

Aubameyang could have won the North London Derby for his team only for him to be denied from the spot by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

He made no mistake from the penalty spot against Manchester United after referee Jon Moss pointed to the spot after Brazilian midfielder Fred was adjudged to have pushed Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette in the box.

The converted penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up a 2-0 win for the North Londoners after Granit Xhaka had given the Gunners a first-half lead.

Arsenal move ahead of Manchester United and into the top four as a result of the win.
