After a morale-boosting 3-0 win in the UEFA Champions League against AC Milan at the Stamford Bridge, Chelsea visit San Siro for the reverse fixture in a bid to amplify their chances of progressing to the Round of 16.
The 3-0 loss was a humbling one for AC Milan last week, but they bounced back to winning ways with a composed 2-0 victory against Juventus in Serie A.
Chelsea, meanwhile, built on their Champions League victory with a 3-0 win over Wolves as new manager Graham Potter continues the Blues’ resurrection.
Chelsea have won three in a row, including back-to-back wins by a 3-0 margin, and will look to make it two wins in a week over the Italian champions.
A win here would go a long ways towards securing our spot in the knockout rounds, though a draw would be okay as well and defeat would probably still not spell disaster either.
