‘Emotional’ Aubameyang is completely smitten with Chelsea. The 33-year-old struck yesterday night against his previous team AC Milan to complete his third goal in three games and virtually end the game in the first half.

After the game, he uploaded a photo of himself flying through the air in joy on social media with the comment “Emotions.”

It brought attention to how exceptional this was for a guy who struggled to fit in at Milan as a youth.

Aubameyang has addressed his most recent criticism of his former boss Mikel Arteta on social media. That followed the release of a video from Aubameyang’s time at Barcelona in which he said the Spaniard was incapable of handling star players, reigniting their conflict.

Aubameyang clarified his tweets by writing: “Aware there is a video out that was filmed right after I arrived at Barca.

“At the time, I still had a lot of resentment; Arsenal is doing well this year, and I wish all of my old teammates well, but not on November 6.” Now, all attention is on tomorrow.

Aubameyang is looking back in top form at Chelsea seven months after leaving Arsenal.

In order to reunite with his old boss Thomas Tuchel at a team in need of his goals, he transferred to Stamford Bridge for £14 million.

He did, however, just work out once and play for 59 minutes under Tuchel before the German was fired and Graham Potter took over.

There were doubts about Potter’s capacity to manage large egos in the Chelsea locker room, much like Aubameyang’s critique of Arteta.

Potter has little experience overseeing star players at his previous organizations. He was hailed as a genius-like figure at Ostersunds for orchestrating their ascent from the basement to the top of Swedish football.

Before he arrived at Brighton, where the hiring process eliminated players with ambiguous personalities, Swansea had players with more difficult personalities.

Many people thought Aubameyang may cause Potter problems, but he has prioritized his No. 9 in his preparations.

In response to a question from Standard Sport about how he won Aubameyang over, Potter responded, “No, we haven’t done anything extraordinary; it’s all down to him.

“He has been increasing his physical fitness. We have mentioned that he had a challenging summer, so it has been a matter of increasing his match minutes. The more match minutes he gets, the stronger he becomes, and the more we get to know him, the more he gets to know us.

Everyone appreciates his qualities, which is fantastic for him. The most important thing is for him to enjoy playing football and to be a valuable player, like he is for us. He appears to be having fun, and he values his goals scored.

Simply simply, Chelsea are giving a guy known for being a great finisher the correct type of opportunities.

In practically every game, Potter switches up his system to accommodate Aubameyang, who has succeeded whether playing alone or as part of a front two.

Aubameyang has further astonished everyone in the background with his temperament, consistently accepting more media or promotional work.

He rapidly established connections with the team’s players and the people that provide them with assistance.

His sense of importance and familiarity with London have all helped him settle very quickly.

Aubameyang chose to accept the challenge even though some Chelsea players actually felt their No. 9 shirt was cursed.

He is able to achieve this because of his strong character, and he has shown it by scoring three goals in his previous three games.

Prior to their next two group matches, on the road at RB Salzburg and at home against Dinamo Zagreb, Chelsea is currently in a strong position to advance to the knockout round of the Champions League.

We have to keep pushing because we don’t have enough points right now, said Potter, whose team plays Sunday’s Premier League away game at Aston Villa.

“Salzburg away is the next game in the tournament, and that one is also a tough one, but we have some Premier League games in between, so we have to concentrate on those, and then we’ll be ready for Salzburg.”
