Graham Potter lauds Aubameyang’s hard work and Chalobah’s professionalism.

Updated: Oct 14, 2022

Thomas Tuchel's successor Graham Potter lauds Aubameyang’s hard work off the ball that is constantly overlooked.

Chelsea FC coach Graham Potter is pleased striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has started hitting the back of the net at Stamford Bridge.

The Gabonese striker Aubameyang scored in back-to-back games against Crystal Palace in the Premier League and AC Milan in the Champions League, and Potter says it is proof of the 33-year-old's hard work when he isn’t in possession of the ball.

"I don’t know whether I’ve done anything specifically, it’s more we’ve been working with the whole group and laying those foundations in terms of how we want to be," the Blues boss Potter said as BBC’ Sport quoted.

"The better the team functions, the more whoever is in the forward line has a better chance of playing well and doing what he is there to do, which is to score.

"Of course, that isn’t the only thing he has to do, and a lot of that goes unnoticed because he does a lot of work for the team. We are happy for him, happy that he is scoring - and long may that continue."

Potter also praised Trevoh Chalobah, who stepped in to replace injured Wesley Fofana in Chelsea's 3-0 win over AC Milan during midweek.

“He probably epitomises the group,” Potter said. “Everybody is ready to come in, and ready to play and ready to help. Trevoh has been really professional in training, hardworking. His level has been high, so in that regard, it was a reward for that behaviour that he played so well."
