After a few early moments of promise from the hosts, the Gunners took control of things with Aubameyang tapping home the rebound from Bukayo Saka’s saved shot.
The Arsenal captain doubled his tally soon after, this time picking up the scraps after Nicolas Pepe had raced through and struck the post.
Just before the end of first half, the visitors then put the game to bed with Aubameyang this time providing the assist for Pepe to make it 3-0.
Arsenal remained dominant and untouchable after the break.
