  • 24. Chelsea 1-0 AC Milan.

    Goal for Chelsea! It's a first goal for Wesley Fofana!

  • 24. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Great effort by Thiago Silva, but a great save from Tatarusanu!

    Silva wins the header from the free kick, and forces a corner.

    The corner again meets Silva's head, who wins another corner!

  • 22. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Bennacer is playing around with the ball at the back and gets dispossessed.

    Chelsea try a few crosses with James and Sterling, but neither of them result in a shot on target.

    Balo Toure gives away a free kick on the right hand side after a handball.

  • 20. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Quality sliding tackle from Thiago Silva on Rafael Leao.

    If that goes past him, then Chelsea are in trouble, but the Brazilian expert times it perfectly.

    "Oooh Thiago Silva" rings around Stamford Bridge.

  • 18. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    James whips a cross in towards Aubameyang which is headed away, before Mason Mount slips whilst trying to keep the ball in play.

  • 16. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Tomori can't quite keep the ball in play and it goes out for a Chelsea throw.

    It must be noted that Kalulu and Tomori keep switching sides at the back for Milan, whether that is a good thing or not we will wait and see...

  • 14. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Milan have had 58% possession so far in this one, as Balo Toure goes in late on Reece James who demonstrates his excellent chest control.

    Toure is the second AC Milan player to go into the book after just 15 minutes.

  • 12. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Kovacic looks long for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Tomori sees it out for a goal kick.

    Chelsea are looking to press high so far, but Milan look very dangerous on the counter.

  • 10. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Rafael Leao drives past Wesley Fofana, but just trips over himself which allows Fofana to tackle him in the box.

    Well done by the young Frenchman, but Leao looks very dangerous, and it is easy to see why he is so highly valued across Europe.

  • 8. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    De Ketelaere looks for the run of Rafael Leao, but the communication breaks down and Chelsea counter with Ruben Loftus Cheek.

    He is sliced down by Krunic, and the AC Milan man is given a yellow card.

  • 6. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Great strike from Mason Mount!

    Kovacic plays a great direct ball to Aubameyang, who plays a ball slightly behind Mason Mount on the edge of the box.

    He manages to strike it low and hard towards the bottom right corner, but it is well saved by Tatarusanu.

  • 4. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Rafael Leao surges forward for AC Milan, who gives the ball out wide to Dest, but it ends up being played backwards.

    Koulibaly gives away another free kick on De Ketelaere.

    A scrappy start in South West London.

  • 2. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    A first free kick to defend for Chelsea, as Kalidou Koulibaly gives one away just in front of the halfway line.

    It's whipped in by Tonali, but well cleared by Chelsea.

  • 0. Chelsea 0-0 AC Milan.

    Referee Danny Makkelie gets us underway here at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea vs AC Milan, here we go!

    So excited for this one.

  • Are you ready?

    The players are out and we are ready to get underway.

    "The Chaaaaampionnnnns!"

  • Ten minute warning

    There are just ten minutes until kick-off at Stamford Bridge.

    Grab your snacks, maybe a cold one, and settle down for 90 minutes of watching some brilliant footballers on show...

  • Aubameyang looking sharp.

    Well, he looked sharp at the weekend with his goal against Crystal Palace, but he looks even sharper tonight.

    Joe Cole and Rio Ferdinand were as impressed with the comeback of his hairline as they were with his goal scoring form in the build up to this game which saw the pre-match analysis we know and love...

    His hairline has come back, as has his pace’

  • Drama in Salzburg!

    Well the other game in this group has not disappointed, as Zagreb think they have made it 1-1 in the 93rd minute via former Norwich striker Josep Drmic.

    Unfortunately his goal was ruled out for offside, and Salzburg have seen this game out for a 1-0 win.

    FT. Salzburg 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb

  • Predictions?

    This is a really tough one to call, and is arguably the most appealing fixture to watch even as a neutral out of tonight's games.

    At SunSport, we are going to back The Blues for a home victory, as they look to keep AC Milan out at the Bridge.

    We are going to put a 2-0 win out there for Chelsea, just on a hunch, although it is very likely we could be proved wrong, as AC Milan have some expert finishers in their ranks, such as Leao and Giroud...

    What do you think?

  • Arriving in style...

    Fashion and football are synonymous in the modern world, as two cultural staples have been intertwined so often in recent years.

    We have seen collaborations between brands such as PSG and Jordan, Daily Paper and Ajax and many more, but perhaps none as beautiful as when AC Milan rocked up to Stamford Bridge yesterday.

    The Italian outfit have teamed up with Off-White, the luxury fashion label founded by Virgil Abloh, to provide the team with pre-match gear and to dress the players in terms of formalwear.

    The players went out on the pitch yesterday in stunning Off-White varsity jackets, and arrived in a team bus that read "Players Inside" in the brands signature font.

    Chelsea fans will be hoping that their performance tonight is not as good as their style...

  • An update from Austria...

    Salzburg have taken the lead in the other game in this group, a penalty from Noah Okafor sees them go top of the group for now.

    RB Salzburg 1-0 Dinimo Zagreb. (75.)

  • Tonight's odds from Betfair

    Here are the prices for today's two teams courtesy of bookies Betfair.

    Chelsea to win 7/10

    Draw 29/10

    AC Milan victory 4/1

  • Formation fluidity from Potter.

    Since his arrival from Brighton, we have seen the British boss use a mixture of a 3-5-2 and a 4-2-2-2 formation, similar to what he did in his time at The Seagulls.

    It looks to be the former today, with a back three of Fofana, Koulibaly and Thiago Silva, as Koulibaly plays his first game under Potter.

    Koulibaly will be familiar with the Rossoneri, after he spent his best years so far playing in Italy with Napoli.

    Jorginho and Kai Havertz are both out as injury doubts despite being named on the bench, and that is potentially the reason for the change alongside wanting more strength in the defensive areas.

    Jorginho is replaced by Ruben Loftus Cheek in midfield, who will provide a physical presence and plenty of running.

  • Kepa keeps his place.

    Well Edouard Mendy was fit to start this one as he returned from injury this week, but Graham Potter has decided to stick with big money signing Kepa Arrizabalaga for tonight's clash.

    Kepa has clearly impressed Graham Potter in his unbeaten start to life at Chelsea, and looks to have been given a clean slate by the new boss.

    Mendy on the other hand, has been below his brilliant best this season, but will be keen to fight for his place in the side.

  • AC Milan's starting XI...

    This is how AC Milan will look to take three points away from Stamford Bridge...
