Chelsea have a crucial home game against AC Milan in the Champions League tonight.

Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly who’s set for his first Chelsea appearance under Graham Potter, has spoken highly of the quality in the Chelsea team.

Koulibaly is backing the duo of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling to produce the goods tonight, and believes Aubameyang can find the net.

“Everybody knows Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, we know that he is an important player for us,” said the Senegal international.

“He used to score a lot in the Premier League, he did it also in Barcelona last year and now we are happy to be with him today.

“We know that he can give us a lot because he can score a lot of goals and it is hard to take him in training because he is talented, but I think in training everybody is difficult to take because we have a lot of talent in this team.

“We know that we can score at any time, even if sometimes it is a little bit difficult.

“I have confidence in our strikers, I know that they will always score for us, the most important thing is to not let in goals at the back when we know that up front we have players like Raheem, like Pierre-Emerick, so we know that we can score a lot.

“So he will give us his experience and I hope that he will have big season this year, to score a lot of goals and to try to win something.”
