Mount and Kepa both left really impressed with the same Chelsea player

Mason Mount and Kepa Arrizabalaga both impressed by the same Chelsea player at the San Siro last night

Chelsea players Mason Mount and Kepa Arrizabalaga have both taken to Instagram to praise Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for his performance against AC Milan last night.

The 33-year-old made it three goals in as many appearances for the club at the San Siro yesterday, scoring the second in a comfortable 2-0 win.

The striker was on hand to smash home from Mount’s pass, scoring in back-to-back crucial European games against the Serie A champions.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona man’s movement seems to be on point too. A combination of him and Raheem Sterling in the most advanced areas made things very difficult for the Milan backline, who were missing Fikayo Tomori after his red card.

Aubameyang’s display brought praise from two of his Chelsea teammates in particular, with both Mount and Kepa responding with fire emojis on Instagram.

The England international will be another one delighted with his night’s work.

The 23-year-old picked up an assist for Aubameyang’s goal, whilst also winning a penalty and getting Tomori sent off in the process.

This all occurred before he was rested for the second 45 minutes, although it was still enough time for him to claim the player of the match award.

Kepa meanwhile again enjoyed a comfortable evening between the sticks, as he looks to continue to hold off Edouard Mendy for a starting place in the squad.

One save from a dangerous Sandro Tonali cross was the highlight for the Spaniard, who did little to suggest that he should be replaced anytime soon.

Last night saw him start his sixth consecutive game for the club, and his fifth in five under Graham Potter.

Even though the games are stacking up for the rest of this month, it is difficult to imagine the former outcast will be dropped in the coming weeks.
