Chelsea impress to beat Milan after Tomori’s red card

Chelsea secured an important 2-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro thanks to goals from Jorginho and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after Fikayo Tomori’s red card.

The former Blues defender was adjudged to have pulled back Mason Mount inside the penalty box midway through the first half with the referee pointing to the spot and sending off the England player. Milan were furious and Tomori took an age to leave the field.

But Graham Potter's side deserve huge credit for their professional job on the Italian side. Jorginho duly converted from the spot and when Aubameyang finished off a fine move, with Mount again to the fore, Chelsea were well on their way to a handsome win.

The club's first Champions League win away to Italian opposition in 19 years makes it back-to-back wins against Milan and takes them top of Group E. Victory against Red Bull Salzburg next time out would be enough to reach the knockout stages. The only setback? A second-half injury to Reece James.
