Arsenal captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored his first Premier League hat trick to help his side to a 4-2 win against Leeds United at the Emirates on Sunday.
"I'm happy with the performance. I knew it'd be a hard game, they never gave up," Aubameyang said after the game.
Aubameyang's skills were on show for his first goal on 13 minutes as he confused the Leeds United defence with his footwork before getting his shot away into the bottom left corner.
Leeds United continued to search for a goal, however, and Struijk found the opening on 58 minutes when he jumped above David Bernd Leno.
