Auba to take cursed number

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in the Premier League, back in London, and hopes to soon be back among the goals.

And now the Gabonese striker has selected the shirt number that he will wear for when he first steps out at Stamford Bridge – he will be Chelsea’s new number nine.
