Chelsea recorded their first Champions League win of 2022/23 against Milan last time out, opening Graham Potter’s European account for the club, and lifting them off the foot of the Group E table. For the Italian champions, that 3-0 reversal was a chastening experience that has pushed them to the Europa League spot, so Stefano Pioli will be looking for a big reaction from his players.

It was a tentative Champions League debut for Potter against current Group E pace-setters Red Bull Salzburg, drawing 1-1 at Stamford Bridge, but their most recent 3-0 dispatching of an injury-hit Milan has just elevated the mood in west London. That momentum was taken into the weekend’s repeat 3-0 dismantling of Wolves at the Bridge, meaning they travel to Lombardy with maximum confidence.

The journey to London in midweek was a sobering one for Pioli, who would not have anticipated his side’s capitulation, even with their injury concerns. However, confidence was rebooted and amplified on Saturday afternoon as the Scudetto-wielders put Juventus to the sword in a 2-0 Serie A win. It was the kind of response and morale-boosting victory that’ll do them the world of good when Chelsea come to town.

For ex-Blue Fikayo Tomori, it was not a happy return to his old stamping ground as his side conceded thrice to a Chelsea side baying for blood. However, the England international has proven himself one of the most competent and elite centre-backs in Europe since trading London for Milan, and this season’s Champions League has shone a torch on those qualities. In fact, Tomori has initiated more sequences of play than any other player in the competition this season, with the Milan defender regaining possession for his side 47 times in three games.

Raheem Sterling was in the mood for Chelsea against Milan, and may look to replicate his difference-making exploits at the San Siro. The former Manchester City attacker has now been directly involved in 23 goals in his last 30 starts in the group stages of the Champions League (15 goals, eight assists). That includes either scoring or assisting in each of his two starts this term, notably teeing up Reece James for Chelsea’s third against Milan.

It was a comprehensive thrashing for Chelsea against a Mike Maignan-absent Milan. Wesley Fofana  broke the deadlock before he was forced off through injury. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang then doubled the host’s advantage, before James ultimately capped off a memorable and emphatic night for the Blues.
