Why Aubameyang Will Break Diego Costa Records At Chelsea

JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBAINK reckons Pierre-
Emerick Aubameyang can hit 20 goals this season
despite Chelsea’s early season struggles.
But the Blues striking legend says Auba will only be a
stop-gap solution because of his age and new boss
Graham Potter must start planning ahead.

Aubameyang signed on transfer deadline day and is
yet to score a goal.
There has also been upheaval at Stamford Bridge,
with head coach Thomas Tuchel – the Gabon striker’s
former mentor – getting sacked.
Hasselbaink, 50, who racked up 70 Premier League
goals in 136 games for Chelsea , said: “Aubameyang
did really well at Barcelona. He was scoring goals.
It’s a good signing for the next two years.
“I don’t think that it is a four or five-year signing. It’s
a two-year signing. I think he will score goals; he
knows where the back of the net is.

“He did sign for Chelsea because Tuchel was there
but as a footballer it happens that managers come
and go. His career will keep on going and he needs
to produce like any other player.. and I don’t think
that is a problem.
“Aubameyang can score 20 plus goals. Have they got
a squad to go and become champions? Not yet.
“Have they got a squad to get in the top four and
compete for an FA Cup, or get far in the Champions
League? Yes.
“Are they going to win the Champions League?
They’re not favourites, I don’t think that they are. But
a successful season would be finishing in the top
four and winning a cup this year.

“I think he’s going to embrace it and I think Potter
will embrace him as well. I don’t see any problem
really.
“He has only played two matches. He has not hit the
back of the net yet but that will come. you don’t
become a bad player overnight.”
Aubameyang, 33, replaces flop Romelu Lukaku who is
back on loan at Inter Milan after just one season at
Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have a chequered history with strikers –
German Timo Werner also could not settle in England
and is back in the Bundesliga after two seasons.

The last Blues player to hit 20 Prem goals in a
campaign was Diego Costa in 2016-17.
Hasselbaink – who managed the feat twice – told
SafeBettingSites : “He will score as he is different to
Lukaku, he is different to Werner. They’re different
kinds of players. He’s better in small areas.

“Is his movement going to improve? Yeah, I think the
sharper he is going to become the sharper his
movement is going to be.
“You can see that he’s not there yet with a few times
offside, but with time it will get sharper and that will
come.”
