Group E in the Champions League is shaping up nicely. Chelsea handed the Italian champions AC Milan a 3-0 defeat last week at Stamford Bridge. It was the best result for the English club this season in the competition, after taking only a point from the first two games.
Both Chelsea and AC Milan have 4 points from the first three games, setting up a treat for the fans tonight in San Siro.
AC Milan will be keen to return the favor. The Italian giants are fresh off butchering Juventus by 2-0 goals. It will give them a lot of confidence.
However, it would not be easy against an ever-improving Chelsea side under their new manager Graham Potter. Chelsea is fresh off a 3-0 goal victory over the Wolves in their last league game.
Team News and Lineup
Graham Potter has no new injury concerns. Hakim Ziyech (illness) and Wesley Fofana (knee) are still out.
N’Golo Kante has not recovered from his hamstring issue. However, Thiago Silva is back from his illness due to a cold. Edouard Mendy is also fit and could return if Potter preferred him to Kepa.
Raheem Sterling, Aubameyang, and Ben Chilwell all were rested in their 3-0 win over the Wolves. Reece Jame came off the bench. They could all return in the starting lineup.
Probable XI (3-4-2-1): Kepa; Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella; James, Kovacic, Gallagher, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling; Aubameyang
AC Milan had to deal with a long list of injured players. Mike Maignan, Alessandro Florenzi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Junior Messias, Simon Kjaer, Davide Calabria, and Alexis Saelemaekers all are sidelined.
However, the good news is that left-back Theo Hernandez is back from injury. He played 90 minutes in their 2-0 win over Juventus and is set to start tonight.
Oliver Giroud and Chelsea target Rafael Leao lead from the front.
Probable XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Dest, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Tonali; Krunic, Diaz, Leao; Giroud
AC Milan: 1 win
Chelsea: 2 wins
