Full Chelsea squad revealed for AC Milan clash as Graham Potter ms to complete double

Chelsea would take a huge step towards qualifying from their Champions League group with a win over AC Milan tonight. The Blues beat the Serie A champions at Stamford Bridge just six days ago, with goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James securing a comfortable victory.

The Blues rested several key players in the win over Wolves at the weekend, highlighting the importance of this clash to Graham Potter. Raheem Sterling, Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Aubameyang weren’t included in the starting eleven for the game against the Wolves.

Those players are all likely to return to the starting eleven for the game at San Siro, although there will be a few absentees from the Blues. Hakim Ziyech hasn’t travelled with the squad due to illness, N’Golo Kante has suffered another injury setback, and Fofana is out with an injury he sustained against Milan last week.

But Potter will have the bulk of his squad available for the clash against an ‘angry’ Milan side – in the words of Fikayo Tomori. With that being said, here’s a look at Potter’s expected squad for tonight’s crucial game.

Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy, Marcus Bettinelli.

Defenders: Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Kalidou Koulibaly, Thiago Silva, Marc Cucurella, Cesar Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah.

Midfielders: Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, Denis Zakaria, Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher, Carney Chukwuemeka.

Forwards: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Armando Broja, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Raheem
