Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a stunning goal in the second half of Arsenal's 4-2 victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday at Emirates Stadium in London.

The tally came in the 56th minute of the win. The Gunners trailed 2-1 when Aaron Ramsey tapped a pass over to Aubameyang at the top of the Spurs box. Aubameyang used his first touch to rifle a right-footed shot into the right side of the net, beating keeper Hugo Lloris into the corner.

"It was unbelievable but he does that in training all the time," Ramsey told Arsenal.com. "He just eases the ball into the corners but with pace as well. It reminds me of Thierry Henry's finishes, so he has that in the locker. He's been fabulous for us."

Aubameyang also scored the first goal of the game, netting a penalty kick in the 10th minute. Tottenham tied the score with an Eric Dier goal in the 30th minute. Harry Kane gave Tottenham a 2-1 lead with a penalty kick in the 34th minute.

Aubameyang hit his equalizer 11 minutes after the break. Alexandre Lacazette had the go-ahead score in the 74th minute, before Lucas Torreira added the final tally in the 77th minute.
