Chelsea continues their journey by defeating AC Milan 3-0 and securing points in the group rankings.
On Wednesday Chelsea outperformed AC Milan by defeating them 3-0 in the champions league at home making them get back on track with goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Reece James.
Chelsea had a bad start in the first few matches in the tournament where they were defeated by clubs like Dynamo Zagreb (0-1), and drew against Salzburg (1-1) at home, back-to-back. After their recent win, they have four points secured making them 2nd in the group after Salzburg.
Since 2014 the seven times champion Italian team also have a good opportunity to find their way to the knockout stage of the champions league, they need to find more in San Siro than what they showed in London.
Even if they did not have a good start in the championship Chelsea looks back with confidence and morale after their win, they might look quite apart from Real Madrid who lifted the trophy last year but they managed to grab a victory clinically.
The match on Saturday at the beginning looked very sloppy from Chelsea’s side but gradually they took control in the middle when the shot from Mason Mount pushed wide and when Thiago Silva went close with two headers from the corners.
Unexpectedly Thiago Silva was left unmarked he again gave a powerful header which was eventually beaten out by the opposition keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, but as the ball rebounded Fofana placed the ball in the gap making it 1-0 in the 24th minute.
Till the first half Mount seemed lacking in a lot of his abilities like precision which made him miss a golden opportunity when Rade Krunic received a good ball from Ben Chilwell’s lunge after Kepa Arrzibalaga saved a shot from Charles de keteleare.
In the 56th minute, Reece James put a beautiful cross which the Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori failed to put in the back of the net but then Aubameyang did his job to put the ball successfully in the net giving them 2 goals lead.
Then after 5 minutes, Reece James was unmarked by the opposition defenders and received a pass from Raheem Sterling which he lashed into the roof of the net.
