Chelsea v AC Milan: Predicted XI, Team News And Injury Updates.

 As Chelsea welcomes AC Milan to Stamford Bridge for their Group E matchup on Wednesday, supporters will be hoping that the third time will prove to be the charm in the 2022–23 Champions League.

After two games without a victory, Graham Potter's team is in last place in the division, while the Rossoneri are in first place after accumulating four points from a possible six.

Team News And Injury Updates:

N'Golo Kante (thigh) is already expected to miss Chelsea's match against Milan, and both Marc Cucurella and Carney Chukwuemeka will need to be evaluated after missing the victory over Palace due to illness. However, Edouard Mendy is expected to be able to return from a knee injury.

It seems unlikely that Cucurella will be eligible to start on Wednesday due to his infection, and Jorginho, who suffered an abdominal injury at Selhurst Park, has also been listed as questionable for the match against the Rossoneri.

Therefore, if Jorginho cannot recover in time, Gallagher might be rewarded for his game-winning actions with a start in the Champions League.

Although Milan's medical staff is overburdened due to the confinement of Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Divock Origi, Junior Messias, and Alessandro Florenzi to the hospital, Chelsea's treatment room is fully populated.

In the victory over Empoli, Pioli also saw all three of the injured players—Simon Kjaer, Alexis Saelemaekers, and Davide Calabria—come off. The two defenders both suffered hamstring injuries, while Saelemaekers suffered a knee sprain.

Although it's unknown how serious the trio's problems are, Pioli will probably need to change his starting XI once more as Sergino Dest, Rade Krunic, and Pierre Kalulu get ready to be drafted into the first XI.

Chelsea Predicted XI:

Kepa; James, Fofana, Silva, Chilwell; Mount, Kovacic, Gallagher; Havertz; Aubameyang, Sterling.

AC Milan Predicted XI:

Tatarusanu; Dest, Kalulu, Tomori, Ballo-Toure; Tonali, Bennacer; Krunic, De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud.

Editor's Predicted Result:

Chelsea 1-1 AC Milan
