Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has said he does not fancy facing Chelsea in the finals of the Europa League.
‘No, I don’t want them,’ Aubameyang told reporters when asked about the prospect of facing Chelsea in Baku.
‘We know they are a great team but hopefully first we will go to the final and then I prefer to play Frankfurt, because we have already played against Chelsea. ‘I know Frankfurt are really good and if we both go through to the final it will be a hard one.’
He continued: ‘It’s a tough battle. We have great strikers in the Premier League. Hopefully they won’t keep scoring, but I’m a guy who is confident and I know that I can do it.
If I don’t, no worries, that’s no problem. But there are still two games to play in the league so I have my chances. Why not? ‘I won it two years ago in Germany, in the last game. Me and [Robert] Lewandowski were level on 30 goals and on the final day I scored a penalty. When you are a striker it means a lot. If you want to be the best you have to win the Golden Boot.’
