Chelsea kickstarted their stuttering Champions League campaign in emphatic fashion with an impressive 3-0 win over AC Milan at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea went into the game bottom of what looked to be a tame Group E after a defeat at Dinamo Zagreb.
However, in Thomas Tuchel’s final game in charge and a draw at home to Red Bull Salzburg on Graham Potter’s debut.
But the hosts are now just a point off table-topping Salzburg and will be feeling much better about their chances of qualifying for the knockout round after dismantling the Italian champions, who they face at the San Siro in the return fixture on Tuesday.
Chelsea took a deserved lead into half-time thanks to Wesley Fofana’s first goal since his £70m switch from Leicester.
And had the game tied up just after the hour mark after strikes from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.
