Graham Potter has a strong squad to choose from despite few Injury concerns ahead of this encounter. Previously Mendy and Kante have missed some matches due to injuries and that's a huge blow to the manager.
We take a look into why Chelsea may still win this encounter in a situation which will leave them with a chance to progress into the next round of the competition.
Firstly, the West London side have the home advantage with the Italians being a difficult team to play against. Having AC Milan at the Bridge will help the players get much needed confidence to face their opponent.
Secondly, the fans will push the team especially with the chance of winning giving the team an opportunity to fight. For a second place finish in the table or even first position to qualify for next stage in the competition.
