Graham Potter praises Aubameyang as striker trip to break Chelsea’s number 9 curse

Graham Potter’s understated revolution at Chelsea is starting to make some serious noise, as he praises Aubameyang’s sensational effort.

There is no hint of Thomas Tuchel’s replacement struggling to cope with the big Champions League nights and, while it is not Potter’s style to blow his own trumpet, he could be forgiven for reflecting on how far he has come as he watched his new team cruise to victory at the San Siro.

These are moments to cherish for a man who once coached students at Hull University.

Chelsea’s Champions League campaign is back on course, even if Milan will argue that this game was defined by Fikayo Tomori’s controversial early dismissal killing their momentum.

Tomori’s departure from his old side caused local fury. Chelsea pulled clear after the departure of one of their own.

Goals from Jorginho and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took them top of Group E and a place in the last-16 will be theirs if they beat RB Salzburg in a fortnight.

Graham Potter on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang:

“It’s all down to him. He’s been building his fitness up. He had a difficult summer but the stronger he gets and the more we understand him and he understands us, the better he will be.”
