He told the BBC after the game:
“Aubameyang appeared as though he would have rather not been here tonight.”

The former Blues frontman claims that the Gabonese forward looked impartial and may need to stress over his future in the team:
“I thought he was sad and sad and didn’t give remotely close to enough. He looked unbiased and I suspect Graham Potter will think, blimey, he is at absolutely no point ever going to play in a Chelsea pullover in the future under me.”

He showed up at Stamford Bridge with the west London goliaths needing goals and a focal striker.

Lewis’ final part show was considered phenomenal by his manager, who ascribed the upswing in execution from his side to one side back’s presentation.

“Our rhythm, everything was ropey when we arrive in the positions that we could do, we were not good.”
The Spaniard then explained Lewis’ impact:
“But especially when Rico came in he has the ability and the talent to make our game better so most players play good, but he has the ability to play good and make others better… he is extraordinary.”
Lewis made his senior team debut in August and is quickly becoming a prominent member of Guardiola’s first team.
