This season’s UCL third round will see Chelsea host Serie A champions AC Milan at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are bottom of Group E with just one point, while AC Milan leads with four.
The West Londoners will need a win to improve their chances of winning the UCL. Ac Milan have several players out due to injuries, which has given Chelsea a huge advantage. When Chelsea plays AC Milan, Marc Cucurella is expected to return to the starting lineup, and Graham Potter is expected to revert to his preferred back three system.
Thiago Silva will almost certainly be put to the test, and Koulibally could start at the heart of the defense alongside Cucurella and Fofana.
Jorghino suffered an injury against Crystal Palace, and Gallagher could be given a chance to start after a brilliant cameo. Mount will play a more advanced role as a hybrid number eight alongside Loftus-Cheek and Gallagher. Kante is back from but AC Milan clash comes too soon.
Sterling will return to his new role as a hybrid wing-back, with the freedom to attack on the left flank while Reece James operates on the opposite flank.
After a brilliant performance against Crystal Palace last Saturday, Aubamayeng will have another chance to shine.
Havertz will likely be demoted to the bench, and Broja will get his first start.
