Chelsea Beat AC Milan As Aubameyang Gets His First UCL Goal For Chelsea

Graham Potter led Chelsea to their first European win on Wednesday since he took over from Thomas Tuchel who began the Champions League with a defeat to lowly rated Dinamo Zagreb.

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 rounds after dismantling the Italian champions, who they face at the San Siro in the return fixture on Tuesday.

Wesley Fofana’s first goal since joining Chelsea from Leicester for £70 million gave Chelsea a deserving advantage at the break, and goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James tied the deserving three points soon after the hour mark.

However, Potter admitted after the game he is “concerned” by the knee injury sustained by Fofana shortly after his goal, which forced the defender off the field in the first half and saw him leave the stadium on crutches.
