Chelsea star Chris Sutton struggles with Man City. Chris Sutton, a former Chelsea striker, thinks‘s performance against Manchester City may have been his final for the team. On January 5, City defeated the Blues 1-0 at Stamford Bridge thanks to a strike from Riyad Mahrez in the 63rd minute.
Raheem Sterling’s hamstring injury forced Aubameyang, who had started the game on the bench, to enter the game in the fifth minute. The former Arsenal striker put on a forgettable effort, failing to manage a shot on goal and misplacing the ball three times.
Despite only being added in the first half, he was humiliatingly removed in the 68th minute. Graham Potter might be thinking about never using Aubameyang again after Sutton berated the forward’s performance.
After the match, he spoke to the BBC and said: “Aubameyang gave off the impression that he didn’t want to be there tonight. Graham Potter may be considering how he can use Aubameyang in a Chelsea uniform after seeing how awful he was. I’m always hesitant to fault players for lack of effort or unprofessional body language, but Aubameyang exemplified that in every way.”
Apparently uninterested, the Gabonese forward may have to worry about his future with the team, according to the former Blues frontman: “I didn’t offer nearly as much as I should have since I believed he was pitiful and helpless. Graham Potter probably thought, “Blimey, he’s never going to play in a Chelsea jersey again under me,” because he seemed uninterested.”
Aubameyang paid £10 million to move from Barcelona to Chelsea last summer. The west London juggernauts were in desperate need of goals and a center striker when he came to Stamford Bridge.
Timo Werner returned to RB Leipzig for £25.3 million, while Romelu Lukaku went on loan to Inter Milan. Aubameyang has only scored three goals in 16 games in all competitions, failing to make an impression.
