Chelsea need to win tonight after collecting just 1 point from our opening two Champions League group stage games, and we’re going to have to do it against the group leaders and defending Italian champions. Milan are dealing with an injury crisis, especially in defense, so hopefully we can take advantage of that as it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to keep them off the scoresheet.

Potter has gone back a back-three, with Koulibaly called upon. Loftus-Cheek gets the nod in the middle in the only other personnel change from the weekend (Jorginho and Havertz rotating out).

Here we go!
