The second leg of the Champion’s League starts tonight

It’s always good news: it’s matchday! Chelsea’s having a dangerous second leg against AC Milan, at San Siro. The Italians will be revengeful after the 3-0 lesson they received at Stamford Bridge. ManCity is facing Copenhague, Dortmund plays against Sevilla, and PSG will try to defeat Benfica. An exciting game since both of the teams is still unbeaten this year.

How about the Blues?

Kanté to miss this evening’s game

N'Golo Kanté did not train with Chelsea on Monday morning and is not in the squad to face AC Milan in the Champions League today. "N'Golo Kanté's recovery is being managed very carefully after his hamstring injury in August," the club writes on its website. "He reacted to training, so we're waiting for more information on that," Graham Potter said later in a press conference. "It's not ideal. It's disappointing for him and us. We'll have to wait and see how serious it is and then we'll advise," he added.

Ousmane Dembélé on the radar

According to the french media L'Equipe, Ousmane Dembélé's new contract includes a €50 million release clause that will become active in 2023. Todd Boehly, Chelsea’s director, would be interested in the French striker who’s back in form this year.
