Having reached his half-century, the striker has since taken his tally to 52 in the competition as well as 20 for the season.
"I feel proud, I feel really proud," Aubameyang said after receiving his Premier League Milestone, in association with Cadbury. "It is a big achievement but I am a competitor and I want more so obviously I want to score more goals."

Asked whether he thinks about his rivalry with Vardy, Aubameyang said: “Just a little bit, to tell you the truth! I am a human being so of course sometimes I think about it.
"When he scores, I am like, 'OK, we need to work hard.'
"But it is not my priority, the most important thing is to score and to help the team, that is the main thing and then if I can catch Vardy now, I will take it."
As for which of his goals he would count as his favourite, Aubameyang went for one that will delight Arsenal supporters.
"I would think the one against Tottenham last season, the second one," he said.
"It was 2-2 and I drew the game, it was a special goal, first touch and one of my favourite goals here."
