Aubameyang to make possible EPL return as he trains with the team and pressure on Potter.
There’s some footage coming out of Chelsea’s training session this morning showing which players are and aren’t involved after two days off.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is there, getting more action in the rondo than he has in the last few weeks on the pitch.

You can see Auba half heartedly kicked a ball around in the warmups in the clip embedded here:
The pressure has really risen on Graham Potter since he made the call to leave Aubameyang out of his Champions League squad, and most of his recent Premier League matchday groups too.
At first nobody minded much – there were too many shiny new signings to look at – but now results are still poor, he’s being questioned. He’s been asked about it in a couple of press conferences now, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him buckle under the pressure and start using the Gabon striker again soon.
