Chelsea entertained AC Milan at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to earn maximum points at home in the UEFA Champions League. The Blues made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 24th minute courtesy of Wesley Fofana’s goal. The home team controlled the game well and went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang doubled Chelsea’s lead in the 56th minute before Reece James made it 3-0 to the Blues just five minutes later. Graham Potter’s men ended up cruising to a 3-0 win in front of their home fans.
