(Opinion): Pierre Emerick Aubameyang should be in the starting lineup vs Spurs

Chelsea should bring back Pierre Emerick Aubameyang into the starting XI for the match against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend. 

Kai Havertz produced a good cameo off the bench against Southampton but Aubameyang will have extra determination to score against Tottenham having been a former Arsenal player.

Aubameyang deserves a chance and has seemingly trained well, Chelsea also are struggling with putting chances in the back of the net and Aubameyang is clearly still the best finisher in the squad in my opinion.

I personally feel like his link up play is underrated, thus it is time to see something different up top. The experience is needed and I just feel this could be the perfect game for his reintroduction into the side.

If Aubameyang plays bad then fair enough, but don’t drop him from the squad and give him no chances when you are dying for goals, it makes no sense.

  1. It’s really quite simple: He’s not a part of the future!

    Chelsea supporters are screaming bloody murder over the performances which, yes, lack goals, but are more fundamentally about a lack of continuity and cohesion within the squad. This has everything to do with (1) a bunch of new players; and (2) guys returning from long-term injury (which are practically like new players from the standpoint of match day chemistry!). Given that this is the case. Given that Auba is not young and has repeatedly failed to deliver (even looking disinterested at times), why should he be given minutes that could go to someone who we intend to be part of the future? I just don’t see the logic in slowing the rebuild for (a highly speculative) return of a goal or two. Seems penny wise and pound foolish.
