Chelsea locked horns with AC Milan at San Siro earlier tonight as they looked to collect all three points away from home in the UEFA Champions League. The Blues made a brilliant start to the game and found themselves at a numerical advantage in the 18th minute as Fikayo Tomori was sent off. Jorginho opened the goal-scoring from the penalty spot just three minutes later before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it 2-0 to the West London club in the 34th minute. Graham Potter’s men were leading 2-0 at half-time.

Chelsea sat on their lead well in the second half and managed to secure a 2-0 victory on the road.
