Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opens up on 'curse'
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang eventually completed a deadline day move from Barcelona despite late complications and worries. His first two games under Thomas Tuchel resulted in no goals scored.
However, under new manager Graham Potter, the former Arsenal and Barca No.9 has netted twice. First up was a stunning and instinctive strike at Selhurst Park, followed by the poacher's goal in the Champions League against AC Milan.
Although it is a good start, the likes of Alvaro Morata and most recently Romelu Lukaku had good starts donning the No.9 jersey before they both drifted away.
When asked about the so-called No.9 curse, Aubameyang hopes he can put an end to this myth: "I don’t know, I don’t listen to these kind of things. I love the No.9 so I took it. I’m happy with that and hopefully I can score more goals."

Wesley Fofana sends Chelsea message after Milan injury threatens transfer goal
Chelsea fans and Graham Potter alike anxiously await the latest news on the scan the club doctors will be conducting with Wesley Fofana. The French defender was substituted after 38 minutes due to a knee injury sustained in the first half of the Champions League win against AC Milan.
The 21-year-old hobbled off the Stamford Bridge pitch after going down twice on the turf and was replaced by Trevoh Chalobah. That new injury completely overshadowed his first goal for the club and will have Chelsea fans understandably anxious for an update on his situation.
Manager Graham Potter, who will be speaking once again to the press ahead of Wolves on Friday afternoon, said post-match in his press conference: "We don't know yet. That's the one disappointing thing about the evening. We need to scan, and fingers crossed. I wouldn't want to speculate on it now, but we're concerned, and we need to wait for tomorrow, get it scanned and hope for the best. It is what it is.
His message on Instagram read: "From laughter to tears. I’ll be back stronger [soon arrow emoji]. Be sure."
The reference to 'tears' indicates a negative outcome whilst the 'soon' element could hint that maybe the injury lay-off may not be as bad as first feared.

N'Golo Kante 'offered' to Arsenal and Tottenham
With less than 12 months left on his contract and with there being little indication that Todd Boehly and Co. will extend his current deal, the Frenchman, who is currently working his way back to full fitness, is assessing his options ahead of January and next summer.
It is expected that someone like a Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain could snap up his signature on a free agent-type deal but the latest reports from France could put a spanner in those works.
Foot Mercato have reported that Kante has been 'offered by Chelsea to London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham on the request of the 31-year-old who apparently wants to stay in London.
