"I'm Back, I'm Blue, I'm Ready"... Aubameyang Warns Former Club Arsenal Ahead Of London Derby Clash.

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has has warned his former club Arsenal ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash between the two London giants.

In what promises to be an intriguing encounter at Stamford Bridge, Aubameyang is preparing to face the Gunners for the first time since being forced out of the club in January on the back of a discipline breach in north London.

Aubameyang warned in a pre-match trailer from BT Sport that; “Arsenal, it is nothing personal. I’m back, I’m blue, I’m ready. Let's go.”

The Gabonese star first arrived in the Premier League after completing a £58million move from Dortmund to the Emirates Stadium back in January 2018.

After scoring 92 goals in 163 appearances for the Gunners, winning the FA Cup and Community Shield, Aubameyang's relationship with manager Mikel Arteta broke down leading to him losing the club captaincy, banishing from the first team, before eventually sealing a free transfer to Barcelona in January 2022. Many questioned the move as Arsenal were fighting for a top four spot finish in the Premier League.

He went on to score 13 goals in 24 appearances for the Catalan giants as his former side missed out on a top four spot at the expense of their north London rivals Tottenham.

Aubameyang spent just six months at Spanish club before heading back to London where he now plays for fierce rivals Chelsea.

The 33-year-old signed for Chelsea on deadline day in the summer transfer window under the Blues former manager Thomas Tuchel who was keen to add a new attacker to his squad.

The move left Arsenal fans fuming as their former star striker and captain joined their arch rivals to reunite with Tuchel whom he had work with during their time at Borussia Dortmund.

Footage then emerged weeks after his move to Chelsea of Aubameyang criticising Arteta for his man-management, before he responded to the viral video on social media.

Meanwhile, Chelsea lost their first game under Potter last weekend in a very disappointing 4-1 defeat at Brighton.

They, however, bounced back with a scrappy 2-1 victory of Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night with Aubameyang among those starting in a strong XI.
