Chelsea ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang said he has the same problem with Lukaku
Chelsea star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been warned that he faces the same problem that Romelu Lukaku suffered from during his second spell at Stamford Bridge. The Belgian was signed by Inter Milan for £97.5m but failed to impress and was subsequently loaned back to the Serie A side this summer, while the Blues brought in Aubameyang from Barcelona to replace him.
The Gabonese striker has scored three times for his new club since the former Arsenal man moved back to London with Chelsea, but there have been questions since Graham Potter replaced Thomas Tuchel regarding the Blues’ power in front. Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf believes the lack of serving has been plaguing Chelsea for three years, with both Lukaku and Aubameyang falling victim to it.
“It’s been the same problem for the last three years, providing a supply line that allows someone to constantly score goals,” Leboeuf told Fair Betting Sites. “They tried Lukaku and it didn’t work and now it’s Aubameyang but the problem is that they don’t serve them consistently because the football they play is more about horizontal passing and keeping possession rather than trying to score goals quickly like Liverpool. do for example.
“You would think with Reece James and Ben Chilwell they would make a lot of dangerous crosses, although they both had injuries and that didn’t help, but it looks like Aubameyang is suffering the same way Lukaku did with a serve foul.”
