Arsenal’s £60million striker has set his heart on winning the Golden Boot in his first full season in England.
He has scored with his last ten shots on target in the top-flight and it is now 100 days since West Ham’s Lukasz Fabianski saved one of his efforts.
Yet Aubameyang, 29, insists he is still not firing on all cylinders as he sets out to help Arsenal extend their unbeaten run to 20 games against Manchester United on Wednesday.
The former Borussia Dortmund star says: “My scoring record is not bad but I think I am not yet at 100 percent.
“But I feel my best form is coming and I’m feeling very good on the pitch.
“Am I on the same level as Kane, Aguero and Salah? Yeah, I think so.
“It’s still early in the season and we have many good strikers in the Premier League so I don’t know if I can be top scorer, but things are going really well at the moment.
“I think everybody knows that I prefer playing through the middle because I know that I can the team up front.
“But sometimes the coach puts me on the left side and the most important thing is the team and helping them to win.”
Police and FA officials are currently investigating the sickening incident during Sunday’s game when a banana skin was thrown towards Aubameyang as he celebrated his first goal against Spurs.
Yet the episode could not spoil the striker’s enjoyment after he guaranteed his place in Arsenal affections with his two-goal contribution to the 4-2 home win against his team’s bitter rivals.
He has now scored 12 goals in all competitions for the Gunners this season and 22 since arriving at the Emirates from Dortmund on the final day of the January transfer window.
“I think Sunday was my best day in an Arsenal shirt so far,” he says. “It was the best atmosphere I’ve experienced at the Emirates.
“We played like a real team and I’m really happy that things are going so well.
“The Premier League is the greatest league in the world. It’s a great challenge for me and the team have helped me to settle in straight away.
“Sunday’s game was really important for us because we’ve beaten one of our big rivals and now we’re back in the top four.
“But now we have to be ready for another important game against Manchester United on Wednesday because we know how tough it is to stay in this position.”
