Goal! Chelsea 3-0 AC Milan

Provider turned goal scorer, Reece James has surely put the game to bed against the Italian Champions.

Goal! Chelsea 2-0 AC Milan

That makes things a lot more comfortable. Pretty simple for the Blues, defending is so poor. James clips a cross into the box, Aubameyang with so much space as Tomori makes a mess of it and it’s an easy finish.

Second Half

We are back out for the second 45!

Half-time

It was a half of mixed emotions for Wesley Fofana. The defender scored to put Chelsea ahead but had to come off shortly after through injury.

Goal Disallowed!

Wonderful move between Sterling, Aubameyang and Mount ends up in the net but is unfortunately offside.

Goal! Chelsea 1-0 AC Milan

Just a shambles from Milan. Three set-pieces in a row that Silva has a free header, this time it’s parried straight out into the six-yard box. Bit of a chaotic scramble, falls for Fofana and he passes it into the corner from close range.

Kick Off

And so it begins!

Starting XI

Back three for Chelsea, with Koulibaly getting his chance alongside Fofana and Silva. Big news is that Kepa keeps his place in goal despite Mendy’s return to the squad. Chilwell preferred to Cucurella at wing-back, with Aubameyang and Sterling the main threats up front as expected.

For AC Milan, still a strong side despite their injury problems. Giroud and Tomori start on their returns to Stamford Bridge.
