Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was signed on transfer deadline day by Chelsea, and the 33-year-old has featured in two games already for the Blues.

Aubameyang is expected to score a good number of goals for Chelsea this season, but is yet to hit the mark running in two games so far.

Aubameyang has played around an hour in his first two appearances for the Blues, and has had to play with a face mask due to the injury he suffered when assaulted by robbers at his home in Spain.

According to the Gabon international, it hasn’t been easy playing with the injury.

“I need more time,” he said.

“I’m not 100 per cent fit. It’s not easy to play with a mask and with an injury, but hopefully I will get 100 per cent as soon as possible.”
