Unai Emery says he will continue to use Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a variety of positions and off the bench.
The Gabon international is the Premier League’s leading scorer with 10 goals, following Sunday’s brace against Tottenham Hotspur, and has proven his effectiveness as a striker or winger.
He led the line against Spurs and Emery was delighted with his performance.
“In his career he has played as a winger on the right, on the left and like a striker,” Emery said.
“He [has] played with two strikers. I use with him in every position for us. And sometimes his best performance is starting the match on the bench and then playing 20 or 25 minutes.
“In the last two matches he has had a very big performance, working and scoring.”
