Ahead of the first of two games between Group E’s biggest teams, the Blues are still looking for their first win while Milan are juggling a host of injuries in their squad.
Graham Potter’s first game in charge was a frustrating draw with RB Salzburg, so victory on Wednesday would lay down a welcome - and much-needed points-wise - early marker in his tenure.
