Chelsea manager Graham Potter secured his second win in two games and first ever in the Champions League.
Chelsea earned their first Champions League victory as they cruised to a 3-0 win over AC Milan to move from bottom to second in Champions League Group E at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Chelsea is now second in Group E, level points with AC Milan, four points but with a superior goal difference.
The Premier League side outclassed their Serie A counterparts throughout the encounter and grabbed an early foothold as defender Wesley Fofana opened the scoring midway through the first half. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James furthered Chelsea’s lead to help Graham Potter’s side clinch back-to-back victories for the first time this season.
A lacklustre Milan failed to threaten Chelsea in the closing stages as Potter’s side ran out comfortable victors.
This was Milan’s heaviest ever group stage defeat in the UEFA Champions League.
Milan attempted just four shots in this match. Since UEFA Champions League (from 2003-04), Chelsea has only faced fewer in a game in the competition twice, doing so v Malmö FF in October 2021 (two) and v Galatasaray in March 2014 (three).
Next up for the Blues is AC Milan, away from home in the San Siro.
