- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has missed 20 big chances in the Premier League
- The 19-goal scorer has wasted more than Callum Wilson, who has missed 18
- Third place is Man City youngster Gabriel Jesus with 17 missed and seven goals
He may be sitting joint-first in the Premier League scoring charts with 19 goals, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also guilty of missing 20 big chances this season, according to the Premier League’s own statistics.
The Arsenal man has enjoyed a prolific season, but could have bagged even more goals for the Champions League-chasing Gunners, who currently sit fifth, one point behind Chelsea with four games to go.
He has missed two more than highly sought-after Bournemouth man Callum Wilson, who is currently second in the chart.

Although he has just seven Premier League strikes to his name this season, Gabriel Jesus has also conspired to waste 17 good opportunities for the league leaders.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah – also on 19 league goals – and Jamie Vardy are then tied for fourth with 15 missed chances each.
Manchester United pair Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford round off the top seven having failed to convert 14 good chances each this campaign.
