Graham Potter has already secured Chelsea's first league victory, and the Blues' focus now shifts to Wednesday's Champions League clash with AC Milan.
The West Londoners have yet to win a game in their group and are ranked fourth in group E. However, it is still early, and Chelsea will require Potter's charm to achieve the best results. Here are a few things to look out for i when Chelsea takes on AC Milan at Stamford Bridge:
1. Giroud Returns to Stamford Bridge.
The veteran French forward left Chelsea for Milan in the summer of 2021, and he will return to Stamford Bridge to face his former club. Giroud was instrumental in Chelsea's 2021 Champions League victory, scoring the famous overhead kick against Atlético Madrid to secure points for the Blues. Can the 36-year-old forward score against his former club?
2. Aubameyang's enchantment.
Last weekend, Aubameyang scored his first of many goals for Chelsea against Crystal Palace. Graham Potter started the 33-year-old forward for the second game in a row, and he rewarded the Chelsea manager with a fine strike in the 38th minute. After doing wonders in restoring Chelsea's hopes against Patrick Viera's side, the Gabonese forward will be hoping to make a statement for Chelsea in the UCL clash this Wednesday.
3. Reece James: Reece's One-Man Show
James has been a standout performer for Chelsea and a key figure for Graham Potter. Despite failing to score against Crystal Palace last Saturday, the English wing back did his best to contain Zaha and nearly neutralize threats from his wing, and he will be hoping for a better performance this Wednesday. He is an outstanding player because of his power, strength, and technical abilities.
