Fans were split over the decision, with some feeling sympathy for the striker who had scored two goals during their successful group stage.

A fan posted: "Aubameyang has no future at Chelsea and has the lowest value on the transfer market. It’s logical to drop him over anyone else."

A more sympathetic supporter said: "I actually feel sorry for Aubameyang. Man hasn’t done anything wrong for us to treat him like s***."

Before their Friday night fixture at Stamford Bridge, Jamie Carragher spoke on Sky Sports about Potter's new players and how they might gel.

He said: "Chelsea are going to have problems with players who know they are not going to play.

"What are they going to be like in training? And how will they affect the group? That’s a big problem for Graham Potter."
