Chelsea have been a few steps ahead of Arsenal for years now, but over the last season or so, that has begun to change. The departure of Arsene Wenger has brought new life to the Emirates, and Unai Emery is having quite the impact.
The Blues were successful against the Gunners earlier this season, but since that point, they’ve gone from strength to strength. They’ve now won 10 games in a row, and they’re looking formidable in the Premier League at present.
They continued their fine form against Leicester City on Monday night, with the Gunners coming out as 3-1 winners against the Foxes.
It was a fantastic performance from Emery’s men, and it was a particularly good display from Pierre-Emerick Aubaemyang. The Gabonese forward came off the bench and scored 2 goals, sealing the points for the club in the process, and his display didn’t go unnoticed amongst Chelsea fans.
Indeed, despite their form, the Blues have had more than a few offensive struggles this season, and it’s fair to say that lots of Chelsea fans online are desperate for their club to have a player of Aubameyang’s quality. After all, he matched Alvaro Morata’s league goal tally in just one-half of football.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
After watching Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang come off the Bench and Score 2 Last Night. Just makes you realise how much Chelsea need to go all out for a Striker in January. If we are to challenge for the Title this Year! #CFC

Wow aubameyang with 2 goals with about as many touches off the bench. Must be nice to have prolific strikers …#cfc

All I’m saying is,
Aubameyang just came on and has equal Chelsea Number 29’s League Tally

It will forever hurt me that Aubameyang never played for Chelsea. That was my ultimate wish. i love that man
