Chelsea haven't had a desirable start to the season as they lie outside of the top four in the Premier League standings, while they are yet to register a win in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. The sacking of Thomas Tuchel has only made matters worse.
AC Milan, on the other hand, have four points in their kitty out of a possible six in the Champions League group stage, while they are just three points off the top of the table in Serie A.
This promises to be a great encounter as both sides possess a lot of talent and industriousness.
