The Blues lost their opener to Dinamo Zagreb, a result which ultimately cost Thomas Tuchel his job, before scraping a draw against RB Salzburg.

Now they must contend with table-topping AC Milan and hope for their best result of the season.

Graham Potter won't be judged on his team's Champions League performance in 2022/23, but it is a big proving ground to demonstrate he can turn the tide at the highest level.

AC Milan have picked up four points from their opening two Champions League matches and sit fifth in Serie A with their form building as they seek a return to the top.

Our prediction: Chelsea v AC Milan

Chelsea know they have made life hard for themselves in the Champions League this season given their early poor results. In a strange way, that relieves the pressure on Potter to succeed in this year's competition... but he will be desperate to make an impression. Victory here would drag any doubting fans firmly on side and galvanise the club for a return to domestic action.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2-1 AC Milan (15/2 at bet365)
