Champions League Matchday 3 Chelsea vs Milan

Chelsea vs Milan October 5 2022 21:00CET

A depleted Milan will face a tough test in London when facing Chelsea. Milan lead group E with four points after two matches and surprisingly Chelsea have only managed two points from their first two matches and sit last in the group.

Origi has returned to the squad but Milan head into the game without Theo, Maignan, Kjaer, Saelemaekers  and Calabria with the latter two joining Ibra and Florenzi in being out until late this or into next calendar year. Chelsea are getting healthier with N’Golo Kante,  Edouard Mendy and Marc Cucurella returning to their team. Graham Potter has started his reign as Chelsea manager with one win and one draw. Chelsea feature two familiar names in Thiago Silva and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This is a return to former team for Giroud and Tomori.

Pioli has lots of work ahead in juggling available players and will be been forced to call up primavera players to fill the bench.
