A difficult game was expected between Chelsea and AC Milan, but the Blues won the game with a comfortable 3-0 scoreline.

Goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James sealed the victory for Chelsea.

Speaking after the game, former Chelsea star Joe Cole admitted that there was a gulf in class between Chelsea and AC Milan, as he claimed that AC Milan were disappointing.

For Cole, Reece James had a great game.

Cole told BT Sport: “There was a massive gulf in class between the two teams tonight. It was a routine win for Chelsea.

“It was very disappointing from Milan actually because they threw the towel in towards the end of the goal. That won’t sit well for Milan fans.

“But Chelsea were great, Reece James was sublime all night, there’s not enough superlatives for that man.

“It was so routine for Chelsea. To do that to an AC Milan shows we’re going in the right direction so I’m absolutely delighted.”
