Former Arsenal forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his fifth goal for Barcelona since arriving the club last month.

The Gabonese has scored in his past three Barcelona games, and was one of the scorers in their 4-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

The former Arsenal striker volleyed in a rebound after Gerard Pique’s header hit the crossbar to put his side ahead on 37 minutes.

Ousmane Dembele hammered in a second from a tight angle and Luuk de Jong and Memphis Depay added late goals.

Depay (nine) and De Jong (six) are the only players to score more for Barcelona than Aubameyang this season, despite only joining in early February.

Barca, who are unbeaten over 90 minutes since 8 December, move back up to fourth place in La Liga, points above champions Atletico Madrid.
