Gabon and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed that their win over Watford in the English Premier League will restore his confidence.

Aubameyang says his goal in the Gunners’ 3-0 home win on Sunday has helped boost his confidence after a 'difficult' start to life in the Premier League.

The convincing win ended a run of three successive Premier League losses for Arsene Wenger’s men and the Panthers’ skipper says he feels better.

Aubameyang also spoke about his celebrations, saying despite concerns he could get injured, he intends to continue with the acrobatics.

"I'm feeling really better, in January I didn't play a lot so it was difficult when I came here, but I'm feeling better and I try to do my best of course for the team and for the club," Aubameyang told BBC Africa Sport.

"I think the team did very well and we are all happy, we are feeling better of course. We feel the confidence is back.

"That's my celebration since I'm young and yes that's it I'll do it all my life. That's it."

The former Borussia Dortmund forward added that he is disappointed by the fact that he is not playing in the UEFA Europa League.

"I'm really disappointed because of these rules. And they're [rules] a bit ….not maybe stupid but something like that. And yes I feel a little sad," the 28-year-old added.

"I feel bad because of course I want to help the team. You know what it is when you see your team playing - of course you want to play.”
