Chelsea manager Potter gives an update on Aubameyang fitness

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his debut for Chelsea.

The Gabon forward was excited to play under former manager Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea as the pair have previously worked at Borussia Dortmund.

Tuchel was a huge factor behind Aubameyang’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.

But the German coach was dismissed just days after the 33-year-old’s arrival.

Aubameyang said: “It will be an honour and a joy again (to play under Tuchel), we had some good times in Dortmund together so I am really happy to play for him again.

“We will achieve some big things, I am sure of this and I will try to help the team.

“Come on you blues!”

Chelsea’s new manager Graham Potter was looking forward to coaching the former Arsenal captain.

He said: “It was an important goal.

“He has been working hard to get himself up to Premier League fitness and I have been really impressed with him.

“But any forward will tell you it is important for them to score and it was an important goal for us.”
