Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has turned his attention to the all-important London Derby clash with Watford in the Premier League.

The Gabonese international has switched his focus to the Hornets game after helping the Gunners beat Napoli 2-0 in the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tie on Thursday night.

He took to his official Instagram page to announce that his focus is on getting three points from the Watford game.

Aubameyang had played the entire duration of the game as Arsenal established a comfortable 2-0 lead over Italian Serie A giants Napoli at the Emirates Stadium.

Aaron Ramsey is in his final season with the North Londoners but that has not affected his former at all with a free transfer move to Italian champions Juventus on the horizon.

The Welsh international star opened the scoring for the hosts off an assist from Ainsley Maitland-Niles after just 15 minutes.

Arsenal added a second goal ten minutes after Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly deflected Lucas Torreira’s strike into his own net.

Aubameyang and Arsenal would be hoping to preserve that advantage when they travel to Naples for the second leg next week Thursday.

For now, the target is to get an away win at Watford with only five league wins to show for their efforts away from home this term.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 22 goals for Arsenal this season including 17 goals in the league.
