Aubameyang was let down by Chelsea players during defeat to Arsenal – Hasselbaink

Chelsea legend, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, has claimed that striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was let down by his teammates during Sunday’s Premier League 1-0 defeat to Arsenal..



Aubameyang made only eight touches in the 64 minutes he played for Chelsea against Arsenal before being replaced by Armando Broja in the second half.

However, Hasselbaink believes there were a few moments during the encounter in which Aubameyang made a good run, but the ball did not get to him.

He highlighted that in the first half, the former Barcelona attacker could have had a big chance if Kai Havertz had not crossed the ball to an empty area.


“We were talking about Aubameyang’s having only scored one goal [in the league] so far,” Hasselbaink told Premier League Productions.

“But he [did] everything right [in the game against Arsenal]. He was in the middle of the goal, he stopped and checked.

“He only needed that yard, that yard that [Manchester City’s Erling] Haaland gets.

“But his [Haaland] teammates find him, and he just has to find the corner [of the goal].

“That’s the difference.”
