'Aubameyang has ended Chelsea's No. 9 curse' - Fans conclude after striker's AC Milan goal

The former Gabon international was on song as the Blues subdued the Serie A giants at San Siro

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has ended the number 9 curse at Chelsea, according to fans.

The former Arsenal star was among the scorers as Graham Potter’s Blues secured a 2-0 away win at AC Milan in Tuesday’s Champions League encounter.

Jorginho had handed the Premier League side a 21st-minute lead following Fikayo Tomori’s challenge on Mason Mount.

Eleven minutes before the end of the first half, Aubameyang doubled his team’s advantage after he was teed up by Mount.

With this, the former Gabon captain has now scored in his last three outings for the two-time European kings – prompting claims that he has broken the jinx on the shirt number that has proved a weight on the shoulders of strikers at Stamford Bridge.

    What a goal from Auba!

    That move and finish from Aubameyang was really delightful to watch sadly we couldn’t get things moving in the second half to get more goals. - @Mar_Peee

  • Thomas Tuchel

    Tuchel was right

    People called Tuchel stupid for picking Aubameyang instead of Ronaldo. Tuchel still proving people wrong even when he isn’t at the club anymore! - @dee_jay247

    A success where stars failed

    Trusted names that have worn the no. 9 shirt at Chelsea before Aubameyang and failed miserably: Radamel Falcao, Fernando Torres, Gonzalo Higuain, Alvaro Morata, and Romelu Lukaku. - @nyannthierry

  • Aubameyang

    A harmless advice

    Aubameyang should tune it down with the backflips though. I don’t want him getting injured of sorts. @IyawoChelsea

  • Mikel Arteta Gabriel Martinelli Arsenal 2022-23

    Hard tackle on Arsenal

    Aubameyang has more Uefa Champions League goals than Arsenal since 2016. - @imbrakoby

  • Memphis Depay

    More clinical than Depay

    Aubameyang is more clinical than Memphis and would have been a better backup striker! Really angry he had to go instead. - @HM_Dominic
