Chelsea will clash heads with AC Milan as they welcome their visitors to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday’s Group E showdown in the Champions League. The Blues sit dead last in the group as they’ve acquired a single point out of two matches that they’ve played so far. On the other hand, the Rossoneri sit at the top with four points from the last two UCL fixtures.
Chelsea Vs AC Milan: Talking Tactics
Graham Potter will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation allowing Kepa Arrizabalaga to continue in between the sticks with Mendy being sidelined while Conor Gallagher replaces Jorginho in the midfield.
Stefano Pioli could also set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Pierre Kalulu and Rade Krunic could make a start in this match as Milan would look to clinch all three points in this European contest.
The Blues will remain without the services of N’Golo Kante and Edouard Mendy due to injury concerns. Furthermore, Marc Cucurella has been hospitalised due to an infection and it seems doubtful that the fullback would return for this home encounter. Meanwhile, Jorginho had sustained a knock in his last outing against Crystal Palace, so he remains doubtful to start.
Chelsea Predicted XI
Kepa; James, Fofana, Silva, Chilwell; Mount, Kovacic, Gallagher; Havertz; Aubameyang, Sterling
The Rossoneri are going through an injury crisis at the moment with Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Divock Origi, Junior Messias and Alessandro Florenzi being confined to the treatment room. Apart from this the trio Simon Kjaer, Alexis Saelemaekers and Davide Calabria all came off injured in their last outing against Empoli, so Pioli has limited options at his disposal.
AC Milan Predicted XI
Tatarusanu; Dest, Kalulu, Tomori, Ballo-Toure; Tonali, Bennacer; Krunic, De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud
